Is the Stack Apps site part of The Stack Overflow Trilogy, or is it just one site of the Stack Overflow family sites Stack Exchange sites?
Sorry, but I'm a little bit confused.

I wasn't aware that the Stack Overflow family sites and the Stack Overflow Trilogy were separate entities. Now I am confused. –  Grace Note May 27 '10 at 21:25

The Stack Apps support site is, essentially, a Stack Exchange site. It runs on the Stack Exchange engine. It provides Q&A for a community for product support, feature requests, and bug reporting.

The topic just happens to be a product of the Stack Overflow developers. But there's nothing to tie it specifically or exclusively to the Trilogy.

It's in the footer of the trilogy sites, so I'd say it's at least in the League of Justice. –  Kyle Cronin May 28 '10 at 4:30

You can also associate your SO, SU, SF and Meta accounts so it's definitely part of the increasingly inaccurately named trilogy. –  ChrisF May 28 '10 at 11:12
    
@Robert I'm still confused about this naming. –  systempuntoout May 28 '10 at 13:38
    
@systempuntoout - Yes, all very confusing with the historical names being redefined and legally changed. I plan to blog about it once I get past this SE 2.0 beta craziness: blog.stackexchange.com/post/628155535/… –  Robert Cartaino May 28 '10 at 21:41
    
@ChrisF - But accounts also associate with Careers, the Stack Exchange Proposal site, and every site in the new Stack Exchange network. So, clearly the "Trilogy" refers to the four sites of the original service (SO, SF, meta, and SU). –  Robert Cartaino May 31 '10 at 3:22
    
The meaning of "Trilogy" depends on the time it was written. Originally, it was just the three sites SO, SF and MSO. Then, SU launched, and was added. Then more sites launched... I've updated the glossary to reflect this. –  Pops Oct 15 '10 at 13:05

I'd say it's an essential element of the StackOverflow Quintology.

I'd say it's more like a Trilogy. In the Douglas Adams sense of the word, that is. :) –  John Rudy May 27 '10 at 23:56
