Have there been any discussions about the implementation, perhaps on other

Michael, I know that some admins started to ideate about how to
implement such a service. Once I know more, I'll share the news ...

What about services like Dropbox? Dropbox has a public folder where tou can
put a file and get a public URL for it. For temporary files, It works very
fine. And you still have version control, backup, access from anywhere,
uploads just putting the file in your computer's public local folder (and
it's automaticaly uploaded to the web), just to tell some advantages...

I think it's easier than set up a service in a site somewhere, huh?

It is easier, and it would work for some of the use cases - but the main
intention was to keep the functionality of the mail client (e.g. for
less experienced users asking for help on the support mailing lists).

Here is the User Story "Support Mail" [1]:
        Timothy is a new user of LibreOffice and questions concerning
        its use arise. Also new to the idea of mailing lists, he asks a
        question there and quickly adds a document to his mail. Without
        adding the file to the wiki or other document sharing services,
        the people on the mailing list are able to handle this request
        immediately. They can click on the link in the request mail and
        download the document. This even works for people accessing the
        mailing lists via mail archives.

Given the idea, I think such a service would still serve some more
people ... dropbox being an option for other teams (my personal opinion,
of course).
