   - git running on fbsd 5.3.
   - 4 people work on the same project
   - git is used over ssh (aka git+ssh://)
   - when new objects are created, they belong to the creating user
   - normal umask is 077 (we are all paranoid)

We want that every newly created file and directory is modifyable
by any user of the 'git' group.

Now I am interested on how you would solve this problem with standard
Unix-Ids without using external tools (like callin chown/chgrp/chmod
each update).
