You said "dataset" which implies that there is existing data
associated with 365-day and 366-day calendar dates. If true, this
is not a simple problem.

How do you see mapping the data itself from one time system to
another? Interpolation? Or simply discard 5 or 6 records each
year, to make the number of days come out right?

Or do you want to simply transform the time axis, so that you still
have 365 or 366 time steps per year, but the time of day slowly
rotates and you occasionally have one date with two records?

Please clarify what the intention is.
