Set the SGID bit on the toplevel directory you'll be putting respositories

    chmod g+s <directory>

Each new file or directory created should then belong to the group which
owns that toplevel directory.

Todd's "Customer Disservice Hall of Shame" currently contains:
    - Charter Communications: Mislead their customers about service
      levels, block normal Internet connectivity, and exhibit excessive
    - AT&T: Honoring the "checks" they send out to entice you to switch
      long-distance providers is apparently optional.
    - eFax: Receive (not send) 20 pages of *unsolicited* faxes, and lose
      your account.
