The PMIP Database release tags


The PMIP database is now stored in a CVS repository. This makes it possible to define release tags that allow the database administrator and the other users to easily access the latest release of the variables as well as older releases!

The three different kinds of release tags are described below. All the tags of a given type are given in a strictly increasing order, which makes it easy to determine if a release of a variable with a given tag is older or more recent than a release with another tag. Note that the same release of a variable can be assigned different tags, if the variable doesn't change between major updates of the database!


You can find the actual tags used in the PMIP database on the tags history page.
