Before you link me to the page that explains the topics of the site, I've read it. But it seems extremely subjective and people who're doing the interpretation all seem to think just about nothing belongs here.
If you have a question about...
Software development methods and practices Requirements, architecture, and design Quality assurance and testing Configuration management, build, release, and deployment ...then you're probably in the right place to ask your question.
That descriptions says I can ask about software architecture. My question was clearly about software architecture. Machine code is still a real way people can develop software right? And I have to know what to call the aspect of software architecture to learn about it. Asking what things are called seems like a pretty valid question topic within software architecture.
