maintaining UNIX permissions

How have you solved the issue of keeping the file permissions set appropriately for resources shared by Contribute users? Do you use UNIX groups? Do you use perl scripts to maintain read/write permissions and group ownership?


Contribute file permissions

In ACES/Ag, we have a UNIX group named cpsadmin that is the group owner of all the files and directories managed by Contribute. John can describe the process in more detail, but in a nutshell CPS authenticates users and assigns rolls/permissions. Then Contribute transfers the files on behalf of the user, but it uses cpsadmin to login to the S-FTP server instead of the actual username.
