It depends on what is meant by collaborative. Does that mean one group
of people who can access a file, in which case create a group for them
and chown the file to that group and give the group rw permissions.
However, once you get multiple users with multiple pieces of information
that some uses can access and others can't, it starts sounding like a
job for a database of some sort. I wonder if the web-fronted to
postgresql will do https?
