After using LaTeX for many years, I recently found the need to learn about TeX to program a more sophisticated solution to a problem. This site has been incredibly valuable for this. Solving my problem has produced code that I think would be useful for other people as well, and I would like to share the results publicly (maybe not in an official CTAN package, but at least on the Web somewhere).
However, a little portion of my code adapts code from this site (a sorting algorithm that was published by TH, see How to sort an alphanumeric list). This code was published under CC license on this site, but this license is not generally considered a good license to use for software. I do not see any way to contact "TH" to ask for permission to re-license this code, and TH did not reply to the according meta question (Relicensing code from answers). My question is: which options do I have now to publish this code under a software license? Do I even need to be concerned in this case, or is the code too simple/short to require any permission?
I am aware that this is rather a meta question, but since I just created my account (in hope to contact TH), I cannot ask there. I also cannot post comments on the original answer that my code came from. Moreover, I cannot participate in community chats, again due to lack of reputation points. So it seems that my only way to contact anyone at this stage is to pollute the main question space. All apologies if there should be any other option that I might have overlooked.
