Well I think pastebins really tend to be unreliable (most importantly, content disappearing at unexpected time), so small files (whether text or binary, as long as they are relevant) are best posted directly to the mail list; and since compression saves space, tarballs and zipballs are suitable for files longer than a few dozens of lines. This practice is recommended on some FOSS bug trackers, eg. <https://bugs.gentoo.org/>.
