Non-flaring-Iridiums update list known?

Is there any empirical update list out there of all those Iridiums that
are not expected to flare up as they should and would do under "normal"
circumstances, i.e. with an axis-orientation and overall deployment well
within the desired limits?

My own last list, which is some weeks old now, comprises Iridiums 11,
21, 27 and 36. I think it might be useful to publish an update here on
Seesat every now and then, based on both observations and/or other
