That's what I did, and upon checking the quota using repquota -a -s -g I
got the correct values! Thank you.

Final question - how does the OS report that the group is approaching the
quota to root? I know that many other operations use Logwatch to email
root the results of their processes; will the system automagically email
root when a group is approaching their limit, or do I have to activate
this somehow?

Again, thank you very much.
