In this case, we should switch our main repository to use a single
plain text file (e.g. PKGLIST) used by the manycabal2arch program, or
by a Makefile rule, to generate the habs repository. The PKGLIST file
would be fed to some script that generates the table you're referring
to and uploaded to a/the website as I think it was before we became
the team.
