See 'force user' and 'force group' for one possible solution, if you
don't want to retain ownership information.
On our temporary data transfer shares I just force a common owner for
the files. Works a treat.
Alternatively, you can use the 'create mask' and 'directory mask' to
ensure the defaults allow group/other access too.
