Yep, that's a link to the docs from the google code homepage


AFAIK, this is the only one of the python interfaces that supports both 
the netcdf version 3 API and the new (still in alpha) version 4 API, 
which is built on top of HDF5.

As far as getting unidata to support  or bless an 'official' python 
interface, that's not going to happen.  They barely have enough staff to 
support the C, fortran and Java interfaces.
