Actually, common village pump for all projects, it is located here: 

Just nobody uses it, because most users are active in the projects and 
not active on meta, and global watchlists were discussed for at least 
five years and are on the way to be discussed for another five years at 

But I think the point (at leat originally) was not so much to have the 
global discussion forum or the global village pump, but to have a common 
place for Wikivoyage discussions, which so far were held on the old 
Wikivoyage, but now are stale since the old Wikivoyage is locked for 
editing, and anyway it is not a WMF project.
