We need a place where to share test documents that are needed for
reproducing bugs. It would be useful in different scenarios:

    * discussing problems on regional or global mailing lists; such
      files could get limited lifetime
    * too big documents that are not allowed in Freedesktop bugzilla;
      they should stay until the bug is fixed, verified and even longer;
      ideally forever
    * test documents for manual testing in Moztrap; it should stay until
      the test is active; ideally forever

I think that we need something like pastebin.com but for files. Of
course, there are many public systems where you could store files but
there is usually a limited download.

I see. I think that this default is reasonable. I would not want to get
big files into my mailbox.
