Re-opening the MathML Latex discussion

Why not have a resource sharing section?

Does the highlighting library support ASN.1?

Do we have a built-in merge functionality implemented to deduct possible duplicate questions?

Would it be useful to invite tag wiki edit reviewers to check for possible copy-pastes?
