Samba and git permissions

view story

http://serverfault.com – For a project I'm on, I have a git repository cloned into a samba share. All of the files are owned by my smb username account. I need to be able to read and write to the files on my windows machine. The files need to have unix permission 644. I can only access them from my windows machine if I set the permission to 755. The account parker is a member of the www group. What gives? Here's my smb.conf [www] comment = Web Server Files browseable = yes writeable = yes readonly = no path = /home/www follow symlinks = yes wide links = yes valid users = parker create mask = 0777 (HowTos)
