Re: [gembud] Whither GARP? Or withered GARP?

Hey Kevin.

We use GARP, NMAP, and NSHARP on a daily basis here, in several classes and for 
forecasting activities.

Subject: [gembud] Whither GARP? Or withered GARP?

Hi all,

Since the last two bugs on the list have related to GARP . . . this 
brings up the short- and long-term question of GARP support within 
GEMPAK/N-AWIPS.  When was the last time any of the codebase of GARP was 
updated?  Is the code just being bundled as -is, without any significant 
updates, or none at all, into each Unidata NAWIPS release?  I suspect 
that is the case, and we are running into these bugs as a result of 
functions and subroutines not being brought up-to-date with the 
underlying GEMPAK code base.

A couple questions I'm curious about:

1. Are there any plans by Unidata to include GARP with AWIPS 2 once it 
is released?
2. How many folks use GARP on a regular basis?  If you do, do you also 
use NMAP2?
