Hey folks:

By default, any user can query the job status of any other user via SGE
tools.  This presents a privacy risk - a user can determine the email
address (and other info) of another.  This is also true of the cell's
spool directory - any user can investigate job scripts.

Has anyone attempted to firm up the privacy of SGE, such that commands
will only provide information to the job owner?  Or played with
permissions within the cell spool directory?
