In that case, rather than putting this up on a wiki page, would it be
possible to run this tool periodically and post the output somewhere
(under the debian.net or debian.org domain, preferably)?
This is interesting information, but only if kept up to date. Wiki pages
need to be updated manually, so having this run from cron every so often
would be much more interesting.
Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy requires you
to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once, add a voucher, and
save on postage.
