I think the W3C API can give you what you need. 

In Plh's Gargantua project: https://github.com/w3c/gargantua

If you open "browse.html" on localhost, you can see it loads up a dropdown of each group… from there, it's possible to go view "users", affiliations, and what specs they edit. 

That's coming from the W3C API - it pulls, for example, the users for group 49309 (WebAppSec): 


And then you can grab both the affiliation and their specs (search for your name there, and you will see what I mean). It provides a list of end points for the appropriate JSON. 

So, in theory, on can create a scrapper to go through each group (or a set of groups), then for each user, check if they edit something, and then check their affiliation… or some combination of that.

Hope that helps!
