Re: Working-Copy Accessrights on Samba-Share

Hi Jean-Marc,

thank you alot for your quick answer. I've found that thread and
forcing the creation mask sounds like its what i need. I didn't know
Samba had that capability.

As for why Checkouts have to be shared i only can say that they are
hell large and its not possible to supply that amount of space on any
Developer-PC, so they have to be shared.

I'll once again report whether it worked or not once i found the time
to set it up properly.

Thank you again, Greetings
- Dario Ernst
