What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

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
