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.
