The loot masterlist file can be found here - the license permits use and I will of course give attribution.
It should be a standalone webapp that does one and only one thing: take a list of plugins, and return them properly sorted. The list could be read from on a daily basis and the results cached to some fast key/value store.
The loot masterlist is a good potential source of truth for the community. Rather than duplicate and make tribal the openmw-specific plugin positions, it’d be better for everyone to commit those changes to the upstream list and use it on this site.
