Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The question I asked was How do I configure WinMerge as the compare and merge tool for TFS, which I answered myself. However, I did not mark it as the accepted answer in case someone else provided a better answer.

TehOne answered the question with a link to an article that shows you how to configure TFS to work with many merge tools. I'd like to mark that as the accept answer and change my question to "How do I configure TFS to work with various merge tools?" Would this be considered acceptable?

I'll occasionally do this when closing a newer question as a duplicate, to help future searchers better find a good (but originally overly-specific) question with good (general-purpose) answers. If it's actually your question, then by all means generalize it if you have an answer that answers the more general case!
