XSEDE SPs publish information about the software they install and support for users. This information comes from software modules and includes software name, version, description, access method, categories, keywords, etc. Enhance this publishing mechanism so that SPs that host community software areas (CSAs) can on request from a CSA owner also publish information from software modules in a CSA. This enhancement must enable the SP and CSA owners to identify who supports each component: the SP or the CSA owner. CSA owners may choose to publish information thru this mechanism, or thru any other mechanism.
