I'm not even sure what the launchpad attachment size limit is, so I think this is the first time I have had to consider this problem. One option if possible would be to use an efficient compression algorithm like xz to compress the logs down to a size that LP will accept the upload. If that still doesn't get things small enough maybe compress multiple chunks and upload them separately?

If we can't come up with a workaround like the above options, then the next best option is likely to host the content somewhere else and link LP to that location.
