Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Retire OCW?
Date Wed, 20 Nov 2019 00:35:57 GMT
Hi Lewis,

To add some more specifics, the new xarray-based API I have developed for OCW called BCDP
(Big Climate Data Pipeline) has recently been approved for release to open source. Keep in
mind, this is a completely new API that is not backwards compatible, so we were planning to
maintain both the old and new API under one repository (either as separate subfolders or git
branches) until the new API has enough functionality to fully replace the old one. To accelerate
this process and encourage more development, both Kyo and I are seeking some additional funding
sources which we should be more certain about early next year. When I first conceived BCDP,
I was originally planning on releasing it to open source as a separate project outside of
OCW, but after some discussion we thought that it would be better to maintain the OCW brand
for it if possible.

Does this make sense?
