I tend to agree with this.
I originally wanted to setup some offsite PGMR's
with their own Group ( im at level 40 ), but then i
started getting issues like they didnt have permission
to the debugger, and others that seemed dumb.
Started to get a bit of A PAIN and too hard.

Making their grp QPGMR fixed it, but i would have liked
to go my original way. BUT without obvious pointers, i
havnt got a lot of time to spend on it.

Im settling on your method ( i think..).

Subject: IBM supplied QPGMR (was Modify SYSVAL QSYSLIBL)

I would suggest that most AS400 shops use the QPGMR profile for programmer
access.  Tailoring user profiles to specific jobs seems to be a headache.
I suppose some people do this, but not many.
We use AS400 security to keep programmers out of production databases
(program and data) but I suggest a a lot of shops do not even do that much.
Is it asking too much for examples of which QPGMR authorities should be

As a complete aside I was wondering what Walden was on about re. SEPT.
This is the first I heard about SEPT.
Seems to me that accessing system programs via SEPT completely bypass
AS400 security checking. I am probably wrong.
