You can use the jigdo files such as debian-40r2-i386-DVD-1.jigdo from
to extract this information. jigdo files are just gzipped text files.
At least for the 4.0 release you should be able to find jigdo files ...
I think I can send you also some older releases such as Woody in a
private mail. Have to dig ...
