If anybody has opinions about a change in the netCDF CF Convention regarding 
the geostationary projection, see below.

Hi Evan,

I'v seen that you are the maintainer of the GDAL library.
Thus, I'd like to envite you to express your opinion, if possible, about an
issue that has been opened in the cf-conventions repository (
Just to be clear, I'm not representing any institution but I've been
producing/processing netcdf files for a while...
The reason I'm getting in contact, is because I'm not clear about the
impacts of this change form your side.
Since this seems to be a change in the CF standard that will be used only
for the "geostationary" projection, I'm afraid it will increase the number
of exceptions in your code and all the libraries that support this
Iven if you don't want to participate in the discussion it is good that you
be aware of this.

Thanks in advance,
Best Regards,

João Macedo
