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. Cheers Steffen.
