Implement new XSEDE Community Software Repository (CSR) functionality enabling the discovery of cloud specific artifacts such as virtual machine images, and image build recipes created for/by XSEDE researchers with cloud specific ECSS consulting. This effort is being funded by the PIF PY2-02/12.

The work in progress PIF description is here.
