I haven't seen it expressly stated anywhere but as I've spread my presence around more and more of Stack Exchange it's started to seem to me that there are not separate Meta sites for Stack Overflow specifically and the whole of Stack Exchange generally.

So have I assumed correctly that both general and SO-specific questions belong right here on meta.stackoverflow.com?

Yes, that's correct.

meta.stackoverflow.com is both the site-specific meta for Stack Overflow, as well as the general meta site for discussing all things Stack Exchange.

As the blog post announcing per-site metas puts it:

Meta Stack Overflow will serve as the “National Capital” where we process feedback not just for Stack Overflow but for the core engine itself — while the smaller meta sites are akin to regional or state capitals.

There used to be a separate site at meta.stackexchange.com, but that address now redirects here.

    Unfortunately, this makes it difficult for Stack Overflow users to find questions that are specifically relevant to Stack Overflow. Commented Sep 22, 2012 at 15:32
