The umask is already set to 002 at

Unfortunately the default SCP behavior seems to keep the same permissions than the original files at the first upload.

So you can:
- either chmod g+w the file to upload before uploading it
- use rsync or sftp to chmod the permissions after the upload - beware, this can be tricky, check sr #105838

Does that work for you?

when I use scp to send files for the project glob2 to it sets the permissions to 755 appleboy:glob2. Is there anyway to have it automatically set the permissions to 775 appleboy:glob2 instead so other project members can move them around or modify as necessary?
