My meta-question is inspired by this question, which obviously asks for example sourcecode:
Example sage code would be perfect, source code in any language would work as well.
This got me thinking… are sourcecode requests on-topic at all?
I mean, it could be on-topic if I would categorize it as some kind of “reference request”… on the other hand, these kind of questions would be off-topic at other sites (like StackOverflow) and I'm not sure if Crypto.SE is the right place to start accepting such requests. After all, they can be pretty broad and some software requests might even result in opinion-based discussions about which sourcecode is better than another one, most probably combined with a popularity-voting frenzy.
So, there are two sides of a coin… question is, which one is preferred at Crypto.SE?
How do we handle such sourcecode requests?
