Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Bugs are often said to be fixed in the next build. But how to tell builds apart as a mere mortal?

There's a build number in the bottom right corner of every page (on Meta currently 2011.9.17.6). Note there are two build groups: One group is Meta.SO + Meta.SE, the other one is everything else.

Is this to mean that meta.*.stackexchange is the same build as *.stackexchange? – corsiKa Sep 17 '11 at 13:42
@MatthewRead: Orly!? So meta.^ share rep with their parent sites? – Lightness Races in Orbit Oct 3 '11 at 23:45
While that's true, it has nothing at all to do with the build groups. – balpha Oct 4 '11 at 0:08
I guess Area51 is a fourth build group? – Tobias Kienzler Feb 9 '15 at 9:22
@TobiasKienzler Area51 is totally different code, these build groups (of which these days there are only two) refer only to the Q&A sites. – balpha Feb 9 '15 at 9:25
