I'm not really sure my name belongs in that context, Dan has pretty much
taken the ball and ran with it long ago.  As far as the wiki is
concerned, and it's been a while since I put anything on the wiki, but
it's at worst a 3 or 4 line script for formatting to update the wiki
from the wget and md5 lists.  The toughest part is remembering to do it
when the file lists change.  :-)
