I have obtained this information before and I used, AFAICR, the
web-service URL http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/downloads as
described on the API page: http://hackage.haskell.org/api#download

However, when I tried it just now it requested my Hackage credentials
and then gave me a 403 Forbidden error. The file was quite large, nearly
100 MB when I downloaded it last August, and it can only grow bigger so
perhaps it has been disabled for that reason?

BTW, ghc-devs is probably the wrong list for this topic. Try -cafe?
