Hi Quincey:

Any idea when you will get to this?

Yes, one of the HDF5 developers here (Vailin Choi) is wrapping up some work on the 'h5stat' tool, which will probably take another 2-3 weeks. Then, she'll start updating the file format spec. and adding support for the new format changes to the 'h5check' tool (which validates that an HDF5 file conforms to the format spec.). So, in about a month, we'll be able to start feeding you updates to the file format spec.

If you'd like to start earlier than that, I can guide you to the relevant portions of the source code, which are fairly isolated and reasonable well documented.

ok, that sounds good, how do i start?
