[Discuss] Advanced file permisions

I have an auto mounted directory where I want to restrict access to only
members of a specific group, lets call it foogroup for now. I didn't want
to use netgroups for a number of reasons in that the NAS is run by a
separate team, and they use a different LDAP server than we do.

The way I set up the original top level directory is:
chmod 2770: rwxrws--- foogroup
But when I create a subdirectory I get:

It worked well on another directory I used for source control where I
created 2 subdirectories with rwxrwx--- permissions, no group setgid bit,

The most important thing is that only member of foogroup can get into that
