I asked a question while not knowing enough to clearly state my issue. (Here is the question: https://unix.stackexchange.com/q/108842/15010 .) I received a couple responses that helped me get on the right track, but they did not actually answer my question. I continued to read and learn, and today I found a solution. I posted my answer here: https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/109011/15010 .
However, now that I have a little more clarity, I can see how to massively edit my question to make it much more clear for other readers. This seems like a good thing.
My concern is that a massive edit will remove the context for the two responses I received so far. It might make those prior answers appear less relevant.
Bottom line: it seems somewhat unfair to the two responders to massively edit my question, but doing so will make the question much more useful to future readers. What should I do?
