E-mail has the problem that it spams N+1 people who are not interested
in the potentially big data file, plus it's a hassle to subscribe to the
list so that you can post.

It probably needs to be something simple, otherwise what happens is
dropbox/mediafire/ad-supported-upload-service-of-your-choice which do
not necessarily have a very long lifetimes.

A third-party web app can use Github for authentication:
http://developer.github.com/v3/oauth/
But nobody seems to have written so far (or at least I can't find)
something that does this.
