We have a distributed system with lots of services (components) that don't change often. Not every project will touch each component, but I was hoping to input the list of components once and not for each project. Also one could use the full name or an abbreviation, so a global list would unify them.

You could consider solution like the following a plugin my company makes. If its not suitable it might give some ideas at least.
