Sharing eZ Publish related source snippets and examples using GitHub Gists

It's a recommended best practice to stop using traditional pastebin web site services to share source code files and snippets as this delivers overall poor features long term. Instead it is strongly recommended to use GitHub Gists to share almost any text based content via a web browser in seconds, it makes sharing source code examples more simple and more useful to the other party recieving and using these shared source code examples.
