We have certain questions on this site that that are "catch all" questions. Such questions:

  • Have a comprehensive answer
  • Have all other questions about that topic marked as duplicate

I cannot find a complete list of these questions.

When a "catch all" question is proposed in meta, the meta discussion is tagged with . Using that, we can list all the proposed catch-all questions. However, there doesn't seem to be a way to list the catch-all questions that were actually created. I know they many of the them show up on the list of frequently asked questions, but they are mixed in with non-catch-all questions as well.

Can we figure out a way to have a list of all the catch all questions in a central, easily accessible place?

  • I think this question can become the repository for them

  • I put a community wiki answer on this question. Should we also tag each of the questions as "catch-all"? Commented Sep 5, 2013 at 15:54
  • If we have a catch-all tag that would provide an easy way to keep track of them all

  • I think the tag makes a better list than maintaining a list here. Commented Sep 5, 2013 at 16:56
  • FYI, a common term for these kinds of questions on some other SE sites is "canonical questions".
