Hello list,

I have a apache documentroot with ownership root.www-data and mode 755
Now I have a /var/www/index.html and chown'd that file to user "foo". Sincen
"foo" has no write permission under /var/www, he cannot rsync from remote
server to the local filesystem because rsync will try to make temp file and
unlink the original file before writing over it. Is there any solution to
this problem?
