I don't think we really have a generally prefered procedure but you can

 1. wait for the moderator to approve your mail
 2. compress largish attachments before sending your message to the list
 3. provide a link to a location where you put the file (think pastebin
    or similar)
 4. submit an issue over at GitLab.com and attach the file there

# Personally, I prefer 4 with 2 and 1 as runners up.

Hope this helps,
