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

The April 2012 data dump included data for all SE sites, plus the associated meta.* sites. The August 2012 data dump does not include data for the meta.* sites, except that is included.

Was this omission deliberate, or accidental? Can we expect to see the meta.* dump files return?

Meta sites were left out by accident - we are packaging a new torrent that includes just meta sites. You can find it here:
