I just noticed that on Centos 4, a file's group permissions hide the other permissions if you are a member of the group. I would think they would be OR(ed) together? For example:
drwx---r-x 1 NotMe GroupIAmIn 6 Jul 28 04:51 someDirectory
If I am a member of
GroupIAmIn I am unable to
someDirectory even though
other permissions allow this.
I'm wondering why this is the current behavior (what is the motivation) and whether this is standard Linux behavior?
