One useful force directory mode for shares shared by a group is 2775,  
this will allow any directories created under this group to be group 
writeable, and also sets the s bit on the group like 'chmod g+s'  which 
means the group on the directory will be the same as the parent folder, 
regardless of the default group of the user that created the file. 

For a group web publishing directory, I use it like
   force create mode = 775
   force directory mode = 2775

Hope this is helpful to someone,
