Thanks for weighing in. Helpful. Since you ended in "Not sure if I
covered all the issues", can we touch back to see what this says about
the original issue that Rich raised.
The choice to have TDS translate
has implications for data discovery services and crawling. While the
first encoding ("present" with a duration) remains true when new files
are added to the underlying aggregation, the second encoding has to be
altered or it becomes out of date. Does Unidata envision that
metadata harvesters will ping these datasets on a regular basis to get
the updated information? Is there (or should there be) metadata in the
THREDDS catalog to tell crawlers which datasets require periodic
pinging and at what frequency? Is RAMADDA sensitive to these issues?
In short, what are your thoughts on the data discovery process for
datasets that extend to "the present"?

Good questions that i obviously havent thought all the way through.
Data Discovery should want the first form, since then theres no need to
refresh the actual interval. What Data Discovery tools do you want to
Im sorry I dont know what ramadda does, but we could post the question
to the ramadda email group.
