Re: Strange group inheritance in +t directories (3.1-Stable)



I did follow the links.
I am NOT looking for an explanation of +t.
I read Todd's mail, and that explained why the file was group wheel (thanks Todd).

However, I still have not found out the significance of the suid and suid permissions on directories. Sticky(8) does not address this.
