Re: Is it possible to have a shared workarea?

I had just been thinking that when I got your e-mail. Is this right?

% chmod u+s post-commit
% chmod g+s post-commit

Even after I did this, I got the following when trying to run the hook
as a different user:

/dev/fd/4: update.: Permission denied

I'm not sure I understand why it would have a problem. The listing looks

-rwsrwsr-x 1 oasinfr users 1694 Jan 15 16:43 post-commit

So, if I am logged in as some other user and I execute the post-commit
script. It and all commands executed by it should be running as oasinfr,
