Great! Nice to see something, Geoff.
Given that this is a "new" package, I'm giving it extra scrutiny.

I notice that the libnetcXXX files are relatively tiny.
Does it really make sense to split them out?

You do have the option of having just a unified "libnetcdf" package if
you would prefer.

If you still choose to split them all up separately, it would probably
be useful to have a more descriptive description.
Currently, :

NAME=libnetcdff5 - Machine-independent data formats for array-oriented
scientific data, libnetcdff.so.5

that doesnt seem very helpful to me, in describing why you bothered
splitting it out. Or what libnetcdff
5 IS.

Alternative style of naming, for the other lib:

libnetcdf_c++5 - C++ shared library for netcdf

rather than the long but mostly unhelpful
libnetcdf_c++5 - Machine-independent data formats for array-oriented
scientific data, libnetcdf_c++.so.5
