I want to ask a question, but it is basically a duplicate of a (5 year old) question already asked here and that question doesn't have an answer. Morally, any good answer to that question would be an answer to my question, although I plan on having a bit more context which specifically emphasize I would prefer a geometric/topological approach as an answer (also I add why I don't think one of the comments on that question would be a good answer). Since I am being somewhat more specific in what I am looking for, I would have relevant tags which are not obviously related the original question (to hopefully attract people from those areas). Due to the above, I think that adding my context to their question would change theirs a bit to much.
Question: Would it be better to put a bounty on it and maybe add some geometry/topology tags or re-ask the question with the additional context I am interested in?
