|Re: [eclipse.org-committers] How to deal with stackoverflow contributions|
Hi,not a general solution, but for this particular (type of) snippet, I think it's reasonable to consider it a reference for learning what API solves your problem, and then write the code yourself.

Hi,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 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-internal-resources?utm_medium=organic&utm_source=google_rich_qa&utm_campaign=google_rich_qaWhat 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-committersIMPORTANT: Membership in this list is generated by processes internal to the Eclipse Foundation.
