Is it actual code from a project rather than pseudo-code or example code?
The FAQ clearly states example code is off-topic, and this notion of example projects being exempt from the rule seems counter-intuitive. It would be natural to assume that example code includes example projects, making them off-topic.
What are some possible lines of reasoning that could lead to the idea of example projects not falling under the umbrella of example code? For instance, is it because the FAQ is using an uncommon, unwritten definition of "example code" that somehow excludes example projects?
Is posting and reviewing example projects here a constructive activity? Why or why not?
