        I realize this is used on some lists and forums, but I suspect it
wouldn't be so great.  The e-mail would be more readable but less searchable
for repeated issues.  Also, other posters would then have to go to another
web page to help and couldn't help if it was down.  Finally, I should think
the list needs to have the errors on it so they are searchable and the same
posters aren't telling another member how to fix the same issue every week.
Just my 2¢.

Subject: [Xen-users] [OT] About using pastebin

Hi guys,

I've been reading the list for a while and I've seen a lot of messages 
with logs, configurations files and other log-dumped-text that makes the 
email message 300+ lines long, including those text and things.

And I was wondering... What if we use pastebin[1] or something like that 
to paste our configuration files, logs, and any other output text we 
want to send to the list? I think that way the email could be more 

Just a suggestion...
