If the list was on the wiki, it could be pulled in using a php script 
(using curl) to present that extracted information in the format 
currently held in the flat file.

I use this to get dynamically present information from my Alfresco 
server into my PHP apps, using the Alfresco REST api.

If you have a page on the wiki with the information to pull in, I could 
have a go as a proof of concept, if this would be useful.
