Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I asked a question some days ago in stackoverflow that involves generating a custom widget for android.

I just edited my answer adding some code I did so far and I used someone else code as well. I didn't paste it all in the question because I didn't want to use all the space with code.

I was willing to place the code somewhere people can edit or propose patches.

So that's why I would like to have this. Each question having a repo (svn/git/whatever) where people can upload code and get improved by the community.

What do you think?

PS: Accepted patches == rep points? :)

I think this is an interesting idea, but we have lots of other sites that act as code repositories already. – jjnguy Oct 6 '10 at 15:37

If it is more a development project than a question, than it's probably not a good fit for a Q&A site. I think Stack Overflow should stick to Q&A.

Then should my question be closed for subjective and argumentative? – Macarse Oct 6 '10 at 15:56

The stackexchange network is growing to support Q&A not only for programming, and this wouldn't be useful on them.

So I disagree
