Hi Mike,

Are you the same Mike Smith that was part of DCG in the early 90s?
If so, do you remember me (John Dorn with I/NET, Inc.)?  Hope all
is going well.  We have been writing internet applications since
the USF and UBC days and are currently porting the Netscape products
(threaded C++ code) to V4R2.  I have few questions on code packaging
that hopefully you have time to answer:
1)Code built on V3R1
  a)Code restored on V3R1 system and then resaved (TGTRLS V3R1M0)
    after observablity is removed.  Should this code always restore
    fine on V3R1 and V3R2 systems?
  b)Code restored and converted on V3R7 system and then resaved (TGTRLS
    V3R6M0) after observablity is removed.  Should this code always
    restore fine on V3R6+ (V3R6,V3R7,V4R1,V4R2) systems?
    (This seems to work most of the time but not always)
Looking back, it was nice being part of OS/400 as you always knew the
code was built for and worked on each release.

In general, what is the risk shipping code with observability (no
debug information) as far as reverse engineering goes?  In the past
we have also removed observability to save disk space on the customers
AS/400.

Thanks for your time,

John Dorn
