My only conern about that is the size of the file, but that said it's
just a file so it's not really an issue. :-)

Well, as the saying goes "If you use it..." :-)

There are a few things to be done to bring it fully into the asf fold

 1) move the file with the links to files into svn
 2) move the file creator and outputs under an apache.org domain
 3) change the styling of the html so it appears more "asf"
 4) add regular cron jobs to generate the output files

None of this is a huge task, but I'm hesitant to start implementing it
until there's more support. I can't believe that throughout the entire
asf there are so few events of interest!

BTW, if people want to work on any of the above drop me a line! All the
code required is in svn :-)
