We've just closed Class for Curriculum Vitae as a duplicate of LaTeX template for resume/curriculum vitae. The text says "This question covers exactly the same ground as earlier questions on this topic; its answers may be merged with another identical question." (emphasis mine).

How, exactly, do we do that merge? In this case, there's no point in leaving both lying around and a couple of the answers on the closed question don't appear on the still open one so merging seems a good plan.

  • Maybe one needs access to moderation tools? They are currently at 2000 rep.

  • @Caramdir: In that case, everyone should go and find some questions of Joseph's to vote up. He just needs two more days hitting the rep boundary to get to 2000! Aug 4, 2010 at 8:01
  • @Caramdir: the relevant merge tool is strictly “official” moderators only – it can’t be accessed with any amount of reputation. At least that’s the situation on Stack Overflow. It may of course be different on other sites. Aug 4, 2010 at 8:41
  • In that case: when do we get moderators?

    @Caramdir: from the StackExchange blog: "That’s why I am in the process of identifying and organizing a team of provisional Moderators from within each community (about three per site, starting about seven days into the public Beta)." So by this time next week, I guess. Aug 4, 2010 at 13:48

See this Meta.Stackoverflow question and answer.

They say it is a moderator only tool, but I don't know whether this would be slightly different here as we are still in beta.
