[Gluster-users] anonuid-like feature?

Hi there,

I'm trying to create a readable&writable-by-all volume using GlusterFS 2 rc7. 
With NFS, you can use 'anonuid' and 'anongid' for that. GlusterFS has the 
features/filter 'fixed-uid' and 'fixed-gid' options, which seem to be similar 
features, but they don't work as expected. When I create a directory, it's 
owned by the user defined via fixed-uid, but only that user can create files in 
that directory -- unless I make the directory world-writable, but how to do 
that? AFAIK there's no umask option in the GlusterFS client, and globally 
changing the umask on the clients is not an option.

This leads me to the conclusion that 'fixed-uid' and 'fixed-gid' are either 
buggy, or I'm using them in a wrong way (in that case, could anybody give me 
an example?)
