Subject [jira] Created: (INFRA-2189) Please add setgid permission on /www/maven.apache.org
Date Mon, 17 Aug 2009 23:56:14 GMT
Please add setgid permission on /www/maven.apache.org

                 Key: INFRA-2189
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-2189
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Wish
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: Unix Groups
            Reporter: Benjamin Bentmann

After deploying the Maven website via {{mvn site-deploy}} to p.a.o we noticed that the *group*
of the uploaded files gets set to the user performing the upload, see for instance the path
{{/www/maven.apache.org/shared/maven-common-artifact-filters-1.2}}. I'm not aware of a related
change in our tooling and from some discussion on the Maven dev list I got the impression
that the setgid flag on the {{/www/maven.apache.org}} directory should provide the desired
the effect, namely that newly created files automatically belong to the group "maven". The
content in this directory is meant to be updated by all our committers, having the default
group ownership for files being the user's primary group doesn't fit well in this context.
