I recently asked this question. I looked around, but it doesn't look like my problem has been asked here:
A small (9 SLOC) portion of my code is an equation from a user on Stackoverflow. I credit the user and a link to the answer containing the equation is provided in the source code as well. Though I am concerned with this portion of the Code Review Help Center addressing Authorship of Code:
Am I an author or maintainer of the code?
For licensing, moral, and procedural reasons, we cannot review code written by other programmers. We expect you, as the author, to understand why the code is written the way that it is.
I perfectly understand how his code works, and how it fits into my program. Yet it wasn't written by me. Am I allowed to have this question posted, even though it contains code that wasn't written by me but was credited? Thanks.
