Hi again

I can't add write permission via ACL

mkdir /dir/docs 
chown user:user /dir/docs 
setfacl -n -dm u::rwx,g::rx,o::,u:user2:rwx,m::rwx /dir/docs 
setfacl -m u:user2:rwx /dir/docs 
chmod 750 /dir/docs 

I create file in /dir/docs, but user2 have only read permission,
getfacl says that #efective rights r--, how should i set ACL to
/dir/docs if I want give write permission to user2
