Some of the status bits are documented in the "System tables" section of
the ASE Reference Manual, but not everything is documented. You may be
able to get some insight by looking at the source code for the
sp_help_rep_agent and sp_config_rep_agent procedures in the
'installmaster' script, but there is no guarantee for getting a complete
picture. These status columns are internals, after all, and not always
fully documented in the user documentation.
