Could you elaborate on this please?

I started by ading a group "mailadm", the theory being that all the
relevant files would be modifiable by this group and all the people who
should be modifying such files would have suplementary membership of this

What I can't seem to get right is a "simple" scheme so that they can't
(accidently ;-) fiddle with the RCS/ files.  i.e. it seems to need to be
like this:

neale@foo:/usr/local/mailadm/etc$ ls -l
total 11
drwxrwsr-x    2 root     mailadm      1024 Jul  4 18:31 RCS
-r--r--r--    1 neale    mailadm     10069 Jul  4 18:31 relay_domains

Or is this yet another job for sudo?  OTOH, perhaps I'm being overly
paranoid here?
