With the approval of version 1-3 of the ACDD, there are two paths for possible changes.

A major revision has been proposed, to "version 2" of the ACDD. This revision is envisioned as an 'object oriented' organization, likely taking advantage of NetCDF 4's group capabilities.

Further revisions might also be proposed to the 1.3 release. However, given the anticipated transition to an object-oriented version 2, significant changes to 1.3 may well be deferred in favor of the version 2 work. Therefore, while the following document has been created to collect comments and changes for 1.3, its name and introduction reflect the likely development path.
