You probably don't want to give all the existing files in the /project
directory the setgid bit...  (If you have an executable in there with
o+x privileges you've just compromised your group security.)  And you
may not want to give others blanket-write access to all your existing
files.  To recursively change the perms on an existing set of
directories and files:

  # Change perms of all directories
  find /project -type d -exec chmod 2775 {} \;

  # Change perms of all files, use with great care
  find /project -type f -exec chmod 0664 {} \;
