github: suggest using as github attachment for log files
It's not that we _want_ the log to be on an external site. We just want the log, somehow. Probably not pasted inline into the issue text. Also reword the "we are assholes who really want logs" part of the text. It's a subtle balance between trying to be nice and being a complete asshole, but no matter what you do, it will always sound like the latter, so be direct.
