Will Meta Stack Exchange be merged with Meta Stack Overflow? Would such a merge be a good idea? A bad one?
Doubtful at this point.
meta.se is a support site for SE 1.0.
Maybe once all the SE 1.0 sites (except for the tiny handful of "protected" ones) are decommissioned, we can do something different.
edit: we decided to make this change, as the # of living, legacy SE 1.0 sites has dwindled to a fairly small number.
I'd prefer changing jurisdiction as commented there, i.e. make things more consistent and less history burdened:
The only consistent alternative (IMHO) would be merging all meta sites into one, also solving the "bug reports belong on meta.SO" issues at the beta-metas at the moment. And tagging might prevent cluttering...
