I've been working on the automatic generations of aggregations using
NCML. That is, using software to crawl servers and build/write NCML
files that form aggregations of files on the crawled servers.
Question: Is there consensus on the best way to represent time
(assuming it is the new dimension) in a JoinNew aggregation?
Background: I have the code working and it's currently using ISO 8601
to represent time, although I can easily change that. This is work
that comes from crawling to build metadata records for dataset
catalogs - aggregations fit into this because they are an effective
way to mitigate some problems with very large metadata records choking

Do you mean the best way to represent time in the "coordValue" attribute
on the netcdf element? That is the way I was doing it, and I trie to get
CF to accept those ISO strings as valid coordinates. I failed, so I
think I switched to using just numbers. So I think its reasonable to use
ISO dates, and I accept that in the CDM, but its not CF compliant
