Bugs are often said to be fixed in the next build. But how to tell builds apart as a mere mortal?

There's a build number in the bottom right corner of every page (on Meta currently 2011.9.17.6). Note there are two build groups: One group is Meta.SO + Meta.SE, the other one is everything else.

  • Is this to mean that meta.*.stackexchange is the same build as *.stackexchange?

  • @MatthewRead: Orly!? So meta.^stackoverflow.com share rep with their parent sites? Oct 3, 2011 at 23:45
  • While that's true, it has nothing at all to do with the build groups.

  • I guess Area51 is a fourth build group? Feb 9, 2015 at 9:22
  • @TobiasKienzler Area51 is totally different code, these build groups (of which these days there are only two) refer only to the Q&A sites.
