Please integrate the sftpfilecontrol patch into our openssh package.
Here's the description:
openssh patch that allows a system administrator to set the umask on sftp sessions and to control whether the client may issue chown and chmod commands in an sftp session. You may optionally designate a umask that overrides any server, client or environment umasks. This is useful in cases where you want to enforce a strict file creation mode and you want to prohibit users from being able to change file permissions on existing files. An example is a web development server that contains a common folder where many users upload and modify content. The chown/chmod feature is useful in cases where you want to prohibit ftp clients from changing ownership of public area files.

LOL, I created a duplicate of my own bug ;)))
Mike, can you please comment on
my comment is still the same ... bug upstream to get it integrated. how it's related to the previous patch is irrelevant.
it isnt going into the openssh ebuild unless you can find someone who will care enough to watch over it, and that someone certainly isnt me.
