Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I'm curious if questions like this:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2814634/in-scrum-should-a-team-remove-points-from-defect-stories-that-dont-result-in

That are strictly about a process surrounding development, but not about development per-se are fair game?

Or should they be closed?

"Is it about programming?" must be the key question. You can apply Scrum and other processes to everything from writing books to building office blocks (though I would not want to work in an office block built using Scrum). So, for your question regarding a process to be on-topic on SO, it must be specifically about programming. Questions regarding Scrum itself, motivation, or what size of whiteboard to use are definitely OT.
