I'm not sure section 5 applies. It doesn't appear to be submitted for
inclusion in the work.

My concern would be that some other derby-user could come along and
grab this code and then, say, be sued by the employer of the person
that posted it for using their unlicensed, copyrighted code - however
unlikely that may be. (very)

But IANAL and maybe Henri's right. Maybe it's too little to worry
about and he did post it to a public forum.
