Question about star cluster AMIs

Hi all,

I'm a new star cluster user, and a new member to this list. Not sure what
the etiquette is for emailing the list.

I have the following question: When I perform "starcluster listpublic", I
see a list of AMI's (see command output below). However, I have no idea
how each of these AMIs is configured. For example, I need GPU support for
my work, so I would like my AMI to have CUDA pre-installed, and for it to
support being launched with the AWS GPU instances (eg, "g2.2xlarge").
Where can I get detailed information about each of these AMI's??

Thanks so much,
