I found a great tag excerpt and tag wiki in one Stack Exchange community (say, Stack Overflow). In another community (say, Computational Science), we have the same tag with totally missing usage info. Now, I want to reuse most of the text from Stack Overflow tag wiki by a copy-paste with edits to drive the usage guidance to the rules and needs of Computational Science.
Since the tag excerpt does not allow any links and would be edited for the needs of the community, there is nothing that should be done.
For the tag wiki, it is possible and probably necessary to give the proper attribution according to the CC BY-SA 3.0 license requirements. I found one question on Meta regarding this topic which also mentions the required attribution. However, no example is given.
I am intended to do the following:
copy/edit tag excerpt and tailor it
copy tag wiki + edits and add the following in the end:
The contents of this tag-wiki originates from "julia" tag-wiki description at Stack Overflow and was edited to reflect usage guidance and advice specific for the Computational Science community.
- Does it seem like an appropriate attribution? I am a bit lost in whether I fulfill the 3.0 license attribution requirements in this particular situation.
- Are there examples of such tag wikis with attributions anywhere within SE?
- Am I worrying too much? :)
To be a bit more specific, no blind copy-pasting is intended. However, the fact that the tag wiki originated (was based on, used as a fundamental building block) from a tag wiki in another SE community, should be properly attributed.
