I have a bunch of machines pushing data into a dashboard in Graphite and the number of machines is constantly growing so I am wondering whether is a way to automatically regenerate a dashboard based on the machines that are providing various stats.

Like, I don't want to manually add machines to the dashboard each time I add new ones - I want to have a background task running for this.

You should be able to do this by reporting metric names in a task oriented format and wild cards. Example: <site>.<purpose>.<hostname>.<platform>.<stats>

You can also just use a wildcard anywhere (<site>.*.*.*.<stat>) and as long as that metric exists at that level it will be included in the graph.
