Hi Mary, Dave B,

I'm actually getting by ok by doing the part I need PyNIO for on
yellowstone. I have to ship some files back and forth but, given my
timeline, it's a lot easier than trying to figure out installs on my
home machines. Turns out I'm only using PyNIO and not PyNGL in this
script, and purely in a read-a-netCDF-file mode, no writing (that email
went out a little too quickly yesterday!).

I went into this thinking I'd have to go back to NCL 6.0 before running
the script, so I did that yesterday on yellowstone: it all worked.
This morning, forgetting to repeat that, it looked like things were
working even with 6.1.1 ( my yellowstone default). But I caught it and
went back to 6.0 to be safe.

Bigger picture, I haven't actually used PyNGL enough to have any
specific feature requests. I converted one plotting script about a year
ago but haven't been back, though it is definitely something I'd like to
use more. Having PyNGL and PyNIO available again would certainly be a
welcome development :-) It's not looking like an urgent/critical need
here at the moment though since I have the yellowstone option out there.

Re: PyNIO and 6.1.1, I'm not even sure I tried reinstalling that back in
January (after my NCL upgrades). Is there any chance the old release
would still work? It'll be a couple weeks before I'll get to it.

For what it's worth, I have a mixed Linux/Mac environment:
