>NASA Data Systems Stakeholders:
>Data systems standards are a central enabling component of NASA's
>strategy for the Earth science data systems.  The Earth Science Data
>Systems Working Group for Standards is charged with directing the
>adoption of data systems standards that will enhance interoperation of
>Earth science data systems within the agency and with partnering
>organizations.  We do this through open review of standards submitted by
>community stakeholders for endorsement by NASA. It is absolutely
>essential that members of communities that may be impacted by proposed
>standards provide input in this process.
>We are seeking your review of DAP, a data access protocol used in
>OPeNDAP and DODS data systems, proposed as a community standard endorsed 
>for use by NASA data systems.  The Standards Process Group (SPG) has
>that this proposal is relevant to Earth science data and there is
>indication of community support especially in, but certainly not limited
>to, ocean sciences. James Gallagher, Nathan Potter, Tom Sgouros, Steve
>Hankin, and Glenn Flierl, from Peter Cornillon's DODS/OPeNDAP group,
>have provided a "Request for Comments" documenting the DAP 2.0
>specification (see link below).
>The scope of the present review is experience with implementation.  If
>you have experience in implementing or installing a DAP server or
>client we'd like to hear from you.  If you have tried to implement or
>install a DAP server or client but abandoned the effort for whatever
>reason, we'd like to hear about that experience as well.  We'd also like
>to hear from those with experiences with similar systems about the
>appropriateness of the proposed specification. The attached word
>document provides guidance.
