I'm thinking about source revision control systems, development process, testing automation, etc. Are these appropriate for Stack Overflow, or do they fall under Super User's scope?

"software tools commonly used by programmers": 100% SO, 0% SU. –  VonC Aug 20 '10 at 18:21
    
@VonC: It's amazing how many people hit 3k rep, promptly forget the FAQ, and start trying to close all the VCS and editor questions, isn't it? –  Jefromi Sep 14 '10 at 18:47
    
@Jefromi: it is indeed. I didn't think there was any "grey area" regarding VCS tool, but what do I know ;) ? –  VonC Sep 14 '10 at 19:28

If they are objective questions, by all means post them on SO. From the FAQ, you can post questions about:

  • a specific programming problem
  • a software algorithm
  • software tools commonly used by programmers
  • matters that are unique to the programming profession
