I asked a question and received a helpful answer that showed me work that I did not know how to search for. The answer was a link to the author's paper and some context on its relevance. While I could have asked for the author to expand on their paper, I felt that it would be more useful for me to read the section they pointed me to rather than ask for their exposition.
Is it appropriate for me to edit my question with what I've learned from the answer?
EDIT: I've accepted the helpful answer.
