Dear all,
Just for your information,
i have added two new options to r.in.gdal (r66714) to provide better
time series import support
for stacked raster formats like netCDF.

Now the number of digits with leading zero for band numbers can be
specified. That allows chronological correct raster band numbering.
Option "num_digits=5" for example will result in band numbers ranging
from 00001 to 99999.
If set to 0 (default) the already existing numbering scheme will be
used (1 ... 100 ... N).

I have added the option "map_names_file" that creates a text file with
all imported raster map
layer names, that can be directly used as input for t.register.

Several gunittests are now available to assure the correct
implementation of the new options.

Best regards
