[OpenAFS] transitive "fs la"?
Sun, 02 Sep 2007 17:45:48 -0700
A user's rights on a directory are effectively moot unless s/he has
"l" permissions on every ancestor directory (up to the volume root).
So you could say that the "transitive" acl of a directory is its acl
minus permissions which cannot currently be exercised by virtue of the
acls on its ancestors.
I'm interested in a simple utility to print out this sort of effective
acl. For bonus points, query the pts database and factor in group
membership (for example, a group you belong to has "l" on parent and
you personally have "l" on the directory itself).
Has anybody written this already, or should I take a crack at it?
