 Description   

Explore the ability of a curator or sponsor to tell the RSP to extract metadata for a select set of commercial repository (AWS, ...) image information and make it available in software discovery. Once the RSP has registered the curator request it would automatically refresh it's copy of the metadata and inform the curator or sponsor if refresh fails at any time. This effectively outsources choosing which commercial repository images are of interest to the research community thru the RSP.
