|Re: [eclipse.org-committers] How to deal with stackoverflow contributions|
I doubt you can use the snippet, as a committer has to be either the sole author or can otherwise guarantee that *all* contributors are fine with EPL'ing it. -Markus -----Original Message----- From: eclipse.org-committers-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:eclipse.org-committers-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Christian Pontesegger Sent: Donnerstag, 7.

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 https://stackoverflow.blog/2009/06/25/attribution-required/ that at least requires attribution. Say we would re-use a code snippet like this one: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/30031748/how-to-get-image-from-plugin-in ternal-resources?utm_medium=organic&utm_source=google_rich_qa&utm_campaign=g oogle_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 Christian _______________________________________________ eclipse.org-committers mailing list eclipse.org-committers@xxxxxxxxxxx https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/eclipse.org-committers IMPORTANT: Membership in this list is generated by processes internal to the Eclipse Foundation.
