I'd say that screenshots are useful for maps.

Suggestions (fairly straightforward):

* email: for discussions (can include and small (!) snippets, put long
  snippets into pastebin for nice syntax highlighting)

* GRASS Wiki to create permanent documentation (e.g. summary of discussions
  in list, nice approaches etc) including code (there is also syntax

* pastebin is only a temporary container for discussions, not for permanment
  storage. Likewise summaries to the email list are way less useful than adding
  them to the Wiki where they can be further continued.

Makes sense?
