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? – corsiKa Sep 17 '11 at 13:42
  • @MatthewRead: Orly!? So meta.^stackoverflow.com share rep with their parent sites? – Lightness Races in Orbit Oct 3 '11 at 23:45
  • While that's true, it has nothing at all to do with the build groups. – balpha Oct 4 '11 at 0:08
  • I guess Area51 is a fourth build group? – Tobias Kienzler Feb 9 '15 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. – balpha Feb 9 '15 at 9:25
