About gembud
English (USA)

The gembud (GEMPAK buddy) mailing list is a special interest list for users of the GEneral Meteorological PAcKage (GEMPAK) developed by NASA and NCEP (formerly NMC). Subscribers to gembud include users at Unidata sites, government sites and commercial users, including the developers at NCEP, NASA, and Unidata. gembud is used primarily for discussions of intermediate to advanced GEMPAK issues (most beginner questions come directly to Unidata user support), including topics such as using research datasets, developing local extensions, and customizing for site specific uses.

Additionally, gembud is the place to hear about software releases and updates, including new distributions, patches, contributed software, and bug fixes.
