| Does anyone know if it's possible to get ext3 extended
| acl's  to be inherited from a parent dir ? Eg:
| I want to set a directory with extended acl's and have
| any files created subsequently under this dir to inherit
| those extra acls. So far I can't see how this is possible.
| Anyone got this working?
isn't this exactly what the “default ACL” is for?
my understanding is that if a directory has one
of these beasties, then:
① any file created in that dir gets that ACL as
its access ACL; and
② any dir created in that dir gets that ACL as
both its access and default ACLs.
see setfacl(1), getfacl(1), and acl(5).
