We're pretty lucky, most users know to use "module avail" to see what's
there and given we tend to install a couple of new packages a day (yay
bioinformatics) any active update mechanism would probably be overwhelming.

We did used to have a list of software on our website but it was
impossible to keep up to date.

All the best,
