This sounds like a horrible duplication. Better to organize the
screenshots into appropriate folders in the CMS in the first place...

Any "repository" or "index" that must be maintained manually is
creating *lots* of double work, and is doomed to get outdated very,
very quickly, so I strongly suggest to /not/ try to setup a separate
category/listing in the wiki. Either do it automatically, or don't try
to do it.

This however would be doable of course.
