maown - file system monitor for shared group directories

Maown Info Page

I needed a way to manage ownership and permissions of files in a shared directory. ACLs and "chmod g+s" alone were not enough so I wrote maown.

Maown is a file system monitor written in C. It uses inotify to recursively watch a directory tree for file creation and attribute modification. It automatically chowns files to user:group and adjusts group permissions to match user permissions.

The package includes a daemon with a simple configuration file. Each line in the configuration file specifies a user, a group and a list of directories to monitor:

<user> <group> <directory> [<directory>...]

Bump: I have improved the code, changed the name and added a daemon.

Maown has been replaced with Autochown.
