At present I am definitely getting the impression that my assumption 
that something like this' must out there', is wrong.

I am following people's links and suggestions (as well as my own; I have 
spent 1-2 hours looking) but have not found anything that is able to be 
used with only minor adjustments.

I have found a XML-Sitemaps Generator at,
this page allows you to create the XML files that can be uploaded to 
google. But as stated I don't actually want what people now call 
'sitemaps' I want a automatically updated 'index / contents page' to my 
website. For example, if I add a tutorial or update any of my links I 
want the 'global contents page' to be updated when the python script is run.

I am now considering how I might address this requirement. If I create a 
python script I will post it on PyPI. As with all my work it will be 
released under the GPLv3 licence.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers Simon
