GUP Explicit Subnet information in CIDR style/format

With over 4500 endpoints in over 40 remote locations, we have over 30 group update providers in our infrastructure. For each of these locations, we have an explicit GUP hostname/subnet reference. This is fine for larger locations when we want everything on say 10.20.x.x to go to one GUP but for smaller locations where our networks are subnetted using CIDR, we don't have an easy way to put this information into our GUP explicit listing. For example, at one location we have the network subnetted into 10.100.64.0/21. Thus, for each subnet at that location, we have to put an individual entry for the corresponding GUP (Ex: 10.100.66.0, 10.100.67.0, etc.) to encompass the entire range.
