Re: [] 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.

Subject: [] How to deal with stackoverflow


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

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
