I am working on a project where a few developers should be able to upload our web application to Tomcat's webapp directory using scp. Each developer is in the same default group. The problem is that when the webapp is uploaded, it sets the file permissions to read-only for the group. Is there a way to make it automatically set the file permissions to read and write for the group without using chmod after the fact? We are using SuSE 9.1.

Try the umask command, it sets the mode when a file is created.
