From my understanding... doesn't every Stack Exchange site have its own meta? I sometimes see questions about other Stack Exchange sites. Is it because SO is one of the first ones? What exactly is the policy on asking questions regarding other sites? Just wondering.

In the About page:

This site is for meta-discussion of the Stack Exchange family of Q&A websites.

    @aug Each site has its own Meta to handle site-specific issues. Currently, Meta Stack Overflow serves as the global Meta for issues that potentially relate to all sites on the network, in addition to its own site-specific issues.
