[THREDDS #CPC-118546]: Meso-SAILS (FN Convention)



Gary,

Thanks for the additional information.

It turns out that the LDM headers we use to get the time information for file 
names only contains time out to the minute, so that complicates things a bit. 
We can't just add any seconds (say, from the current time) to it because we 
cannot guarantee the order of arrival of products. I'm currently looking into 
where the LDM headers come from to see if we have any flexibility to fix this 
further upstream from THREDDS.

I'll let you know what I find out when I do...

Ryan
