Hi there!

I been trying to find a way to mount both a local ext3 filesystem and a fuse 
(ssh) filesystem in such a way that all files created (or copied) into it are 
automatically set to be of certain group.

chmod and chown with cron over the terabyte there is not very eficient. If the 
files are stored from the begining with the correct group I won't need to do 

I have investigated around the options column in fstab, but I haven't found a 
way to do it (unless there is some functionallyti in the "gid" option that is 
supposed to be used with FAT for ext3, that assuming that I understood what 
that option does!).

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot!
