So images are on-topic. How about source code?

I actually have a real-life need to find the source code for some product (which is presumably open source but difficult to find).

Often I have to find the source code of a driver of small library that moved hosting several times, and it can be very tricky to find the up-to-date source code. Pretty much the same challenges as when looking for other types of data.


Since we currently allow data requests for other kinds of content such as and , I see no reason why data hunts for source code would not be welcome at the moment.

However once Open Source SE launches, we might need to reevaluate.


Since open source is handled by StackOverflow's Open Source tag, I suggest we focus on open content (whether data or images).

    Unfortunately such questions would be off-topic on StackOverflow: stackoverflow.com/help/on-topic Actually most questions with the Open Source tag are getting closed and downvoted it seems. Nov 6 '14 at 11:47
