I would just need some kind of file I could parse from a perl script.
Ideally I would run a cron on gluck[1] to pull this file from somewhere
(with http for example) and update the list with the info.

You can quote me on d-i18n (I'm also subscribed to the list, so you
don't need to CC me if you reply there).


[1] Currenly the scripts run on my home in gluck. I have absolutely no
problem with this, but if you prefere we can move them somewhere else
(more public?). Somewhere like haydn.d.o?
