Re: [thredds] Collection Specification

Thanks a lot Tom.
 
I am aware of the ** option to select all sub-dirs. but can't use as I'm
trying to limit the extent of data files collected to the decade
1999-2009 and the current dir. structure includes dir through to the end
of 2010.
 
Assuming if regex not supported in path will have to consider moving to
a different dir. structure.

This (sorta) works for me: 
<collection
spec="/data1/HFRadar/RTV/USWC/**/#yyyyMMddHHmm#_HFRadar_USWC_6km_rtv_SIO
.nc$" recheckAfter="15 min" name="USWC_6km_RTV_fmrc" olderThan="5 min"/>

The ** after the USWC chooses all directories. I didn't try any regular
expressions, since it doesn't seem like this supports traditional regex,
but your should be able to get wildcards in the directory path. Also, I
say sorta above because it's not working for me anymore. I think because
there are too many files in the directory and TDS chokes.

</featureCollection> only support regular expresions in the filename
section, or is it suppose to support it in the directory path as well?
