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: http://proj.badc.rl.ac.uk/svn/exarch/CMIP6dreq/tags/01.beta.03/docs/CMIP6_MIP_tables.xlsx
...

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) ?

Comments

  • 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.
