It was generated using a script. It will not be a problem to redo every week.

Yes, I was thinking of making a Debian native package for it, the data
will be in either sqlite or yaml and then an application to read from
it. cmdline will accept either jar or class name and will list the
package containing them. And if package name is given then it will
list everything that the package contains.
Just a thought for now.
