[python #VOC-640241]: siphon filter_time_nearest : No datasets with times found


So for latest/best/full:

Full: the full dataset with two time coordinates: runtime and forecast time. 
This is all of the Grib data available in a single virtual dataset.
Best: the "best timeseries" of the collection dataset, one time coordinate 
(forecast time)
Latest: the most recent single model run

This poster is a good way to visualize the difference between Full and Best:


Using any one of those provides direct access methods without the need to scan 
through the catalog to match a date string.

Hope that helps,
