[] How to deal with stackoverflow contributions


I would like to ask how we should deal @ eclipse with code saples taken from stackoverflow. Nowaday it is quite common to find code snippets on stackoverflow and reuse them for own implementations. While this might be common practice, I would like to know how such contributions should be dealt with.

Stackoverflow has a license

that at least requires attribution. Say we would re-use a code snippet like this one:

What would be the correct way to use it within a commit? Attribution in the source code next to the snippet? Would we need to file a CQ?

thanks for your answers
