|Re: [eclipse.org-committers] 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:
tions/30031748/how-to-get-imag e-from-plugin-internal-resourc es?utm_medium=organic&utm_ source=google_rich_qa&utm_camp aign=google_rich_qa
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
