I wrote this sentence:

The resulting rulesets are organized in a hierarchical fashion to make it possible to share the rules for extracting content from similar websites.

Can I remove part of it and write it as

The resulting rulesets are organized in a hierarchical fashion to make it possible to share the rules for extracting content from similar websites.

These omission may change the meaning of the sentence without any context, but in both I mean extracting content from similar websites, can I rely context to do such changes?!


Update: If I use "reuse" instead of "share" I can write it as:

The resulting rulesets are organized in a hierarchical fashion to make it possible to reuse the rules for similar websites.

The word 'reuse' works a bit better than 'share', IMO, especially if you consider that the more common preposition used with the verb 'share' is "among" (or "between" if only two entities share something) and "with".

Yes, if the context of the sentence already establishes that you are talking about [rules for] extracting content[s] from websites, no need to repeat it.
