Right, this is part of my concern also. Further, PUBLISH, as I understand it, is something of a one-time or at least reasonably rarely done operation. This is quite different from a SELECT privilege which is used on every query against the table and which may be GRANT'd to user X today and user Y tomorrow and perhaps REVOKE'd from user X the next day. What happens when the PUBLISH right is REVOKE'd from the user who did the PUBLISH in the first place, for example..? Thanks! Stephen
