Subject Re: "sparse" metadata attribute default value for writing csv
Date Tue, 16 Feb 2016 23:09:58 GMT

It should be *false*.
When we created that capability, the default value we started with was
*true* (i.e., do not write out zeros) but then, after getting feedback from
users, we changed the default to *false* (i.e., write out zeros). I guess
the documentation was never updated. Good catch!
