In a recent question of mine, @Ian and I had a rather lengthy back-and-forth about the meaning of something in my question that was unclear. At the time I deemed it relevant to keep in the comments, as others might have had similar issues understanding what I meant.
In the end, however, we figured out a much clearer formulation that I then implemented, leaving the 20-or-so comments obsolete. Now I feel like the comments-section is completely confusing for people trying to figure out the history of the question (and possibly answering it).
Is it possible to migrate the now out-dated comments to the chat? Should I rather contact @Ian and ask him if he could delete his comments (whereafter I would delete mine)? Or should I perhaps make an edit in the question saying that the first 20-or-so comments can be ignored?
