Status of xlsx doc on CMOR_variables

The message announcing version 01.beta.3 states :

Key updates since 28th September:
· Spreadsheet list of CMOR variables:

Can we safely assume it should be considered as a slave document, w.r.t. XML docs ? And that any redundancy inside this doc is harmless (as e.g. having twice the same column 'label' in some tabs) ?


  • Yes, this is a slave document derived automatically from the XML. The code which does this will be part of the distribution in the near future. I will check duplication of "label" -- it is probably due to the way that information from several records in the XML is combined to form one spreadsheet row, so that it is correct in a sense but incomplete and rather unhelpful. It should be possible to improve on this in the next release.
