Re: [] How to deal with stackoverflow contributions


If you want to be on the safe side, you could ask the user if usage via EPL is ok.

Or find such snippets in the existing Eclipse code base and use these.

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
