[SciPy-dev] CVS problem

I fixed the files in question.

I thought we fixed this earlier globally, but apparently not.  Any Unix gurus
that know what the magic incantation needed  on /home/cvsroot/world/scipy to
force all created files in scipy or one of its sub-directories to have users as
the group?

thanks,
eric
