I'd like to use code from an answer on stackoverflow in a GPLv3 project I'm developing. Is this allowed, as long as I state the original source (URL + username) in the docstring of the function I want to copy?

    CC-wiki is wonderful, but it doesn't answer the question "is the share-alike clause of CC-SA fulfilled by GPLv3" – andreash Jun 3 '13 at 21:21
