Aldon's response is that LMi is not capable of promoting source for AFP overlays.
Surely someone must have a workaround as this is one of the popular s/w lifecycle managers on the iseries and AFP is also popular.
Any suggestions on how to promote *OVL source with the *OVL object using Aldon LMi?
The problem seems to be that IBM stores the source in a data file instead of a source file like RPG and CL.

Call Aldon (Rocket) Support. If you do it first thing in the morning
you've got a better chance of immediate attention.
Or e-mail them now and you might have an answer by tomorrow.

There are two items to promote thru Aldon:
#1) the overlay in source form (human-readable) which is stored in a NON-standard source file (DSPFD type = data) named AFPSRC;
#2) the overlay OBJECT type = *OVL.
#2 seems to promote well, but we would like to carry the source #1 thru the promotion also. How can that be done?
