What is the most appropriate way to proceed if you think that a question or an answer that you did not write yourself probably needs to be edited?
E.g., something trivial to the experts and the experienced, but which a novice might not necessarily spot her-/himself. E.g., within a piece of code insertion of a forgotten
\fi or closing brace or the like.
Should one just make the edit? Should one not make the edit but draw the author's attention towards it via a comment and wait until the author takes action her-/himself, and then delete the obsolete comment?
I don't feel good when a post written by someone else also has my name listed in a big way under "edited by...", even though my edit can't be seen as a significant contribution.
Is there something like an "editing policy" or a code of conduct for editing other than not doing trivial edits and not doing edits that distort the gist of an answer?
