Thats a good point that i hadnt thought about. it's currently using a random

it would be better to use a recent one. (i was avoiding the latest in case it
was still being updates) I'll see if I can figure out a way to let you control
that. how many datasets are in your archive typically?

was convenient, since small changes to the metadata could be made to
newer files and the changes would appear in thredds.
The new thredds serves metadata from older data files (the oldest file?
a randomly selected file? I'm not sure) and so the metadata is not the
