Some etiquette for working with user-written programs has long since
been suggested at

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/#relation

I quote the most relevant part

"In practice, you can probably take anything published in either
medium and modify it as you will—especially if you do that
privately—but publicly we recommend that, unless you are the original
author, you change the name of the program, take all blame for any
limitations your changes produce, and imply that a suitably large
portion of the credit for the program belongs to the original
authors."
