Does exist a canon firmware list for each model?

Hi,
I was just wondering....here there's a list of the supported cameras base on the firmware version:
http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK
but....is there a way to know how many firmware version canon made for a camera?
For example a470 supported version are 100e, 101a, 101b, 102c, is there a site where to see all the firmware version produced for that (or others) camera?

The short answer is "no".  There is no way to know how many firmware versions were released for any camera model.

Many of the individual camera pages on the wiki will list firmware versions discovered by people either using CHDK or wanting to use CHDK.  ( e.g  SD940 Firmware Info ) But it's far from complete.

This used to be a bigger problem for us.  Once a port was done for a particular camera & firmware version, it was still quite a bit of work to create ports for other firmware versions of the same camera model.  Thanks to philmoz's code_gen utility (and some of chdk-pt's almost obsolete code matching features) it has become much easier to do. 

Recently, if you ask nicely and can get a firmware dump,  nafraf will usually create a version for a new firmware.
