If we opt to keep Evergreen version information, we could keep that
relatively current by running the scripted equivalent of "curl -d
service=open-ils.search -d locale=en-US -d
http://laurentian.concat.ca/osrf-gateway-v1" against each public Evergreen

Anything that we can't automate will, I fear, fall out of date. But given
the public catalogue URL for each library, we can at the very least
automatically gather a) whether the public catalogue is still responding at
the listed URL and b) the Evergreen version. Maybe c) the server OS (based
on the Apache headers). And that much, I think, would be a win.
