I recently posted this question after searching the site with what I thought were logical and reasonable search terms and coming up empty.
It was then identified that my question is answered quite thoroughly in as an answer to this question.
Based on this discussion in meta, I accept that the questions are duplicate but I doubt whether any future visitor to the site with the same question as mine would be able to find it with a reasonable search. This is because the answer delves much deeper into the background than the original question asked.
So my question is what should be done. I am happy to close my question but should I edit the duplicate question to reflect the scope of the answer so that future users would be able to find it?
