I asked a question that got a pretty good answer. But the answer requires me to change something in my preamble where I only want to make a one-time change within a single list. (This involves the enumitem package.) I put a comment on the answer asking how to get the local fix (it's not obvious to me how to do it, and I don't understand the enumitem documentation very well). How do I know if the original answerer has seen my comment? What I I do if he never responds to my comment? Do I ask the question again, specifically stating that I know about the putting-it-in-the-preamble solution? Do I edit my original question? Should I give the original answerer a chance to respond to my comment? What's the best practice here?
And here's a meta-meta question: should I give specific detail about my question and its answer here in this meta question? Or would that just be distracting?
