No, that's essentially correct. The reasoning behind the
parameter is that an admin may want to set a restriction
that group owners always have rw access for example, and
not enforcing that when a "create with ACL" open is done
would break that policy. With "acl ignore masks = False"
then a create with ACL would have the restriction applied.


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
