If I submit code for review, and then improve that code based on the answers submitted, is there a preferred way of thanking the Code Review site and/or reviewer in the source code? I'm thinking specifically of open source code freely available to the public.
I'm not asking about obligations. I'm just interested to know what is considered most useful to Code Review.
- Make no reference to help received from Code Review.
- Mention that a section of the source code was helped by codereview.stackexchange.com
- Include a link to the specific question asked on Code Review.
- Include a link to the specific answer(s) used for improving the code.
- Something else I haven't thought of...
I'd also like to know whether any such thanks would be best placed as comments in the specific section of code, or as a mention in the README file, or both.
My own inclination would be to include a link to the question rather than an answer, and to include this in both the README file and as a comment, but I'm interested to know whether there are any specific preferences and reasons.
