You can't do anything about the owner of the new files/directories,
it'll be whoever created them. However, you can propagate the group
ownership by setting the parent directory g+s, as in "chmod g+s bar" or
"chmod 2775 bar".

The file mode will not propagate to newly created files/directories,
it'll be determined by the umask of the creator.
