Why not just upload it to Github? Then you only need to send the deltas for every update.

I was just thinking of creating a bot that will update the list(s) and push the changes back on GitHub every day.

But first, I definitely have to see if it's against GitHub's terms of service.

I think that GitHub would love the publicity personally. They strike me as being very savvy regards this sort of thing ;)

does GitHub need any publicity? honest question as I've found that anyone who would ever use the functionality GitHub provides is already very aware of git and GitHub.

people shift between services like github and bitbucket and alternatives all the time. Perhaps not often on an individual basis, but at any one time many people are deciding where to put their stuff.

Almost anything that gets the name of a particular service bumped up to the top of someone's consciousness for a little while will shift some of those decisions toward that service.

This is why even the world's most popular brands (Apple, Coke, etc) never stop spending money on marketing / PR :)
