Thanks for clarifying and I find the GRASS wiki very helpful due to the efforts people have made to accumulate vast useful information there.

I'd say that screenshots are useful for maps.

Are they preferable to putting it in the email since it is 'too' much for an email? I understand how you may want to pastebin python or something else very sensitive to spacing, however, I also thought that one of the main points of the mailing list was posterity and helping other users by search. If all the relevant information is contained in an ephemeral pasetbin, searching is much less helpful.

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.
