      Just ran into an issue with this. I use Resharper, which supports the <inheritdoc/> tag, but I'm also using Swagger UI with ASP.Net Core WebAPI - which essentially reads the generated XML files. The XML files look like this:

      <member name="P:MyNamespace.MyType.MyProperty">
      <inheritdoc/>
      </member>

      So Swagger just reads the <inheritdoc/> tag, as the file (rightly) provides no inheritance information.

      I would suggest that when XML files are generated and <inheritdoc/> is encountered, it should essentially read the inheritance chain and write the relevant help text to the file.
