Re: [PLUG] How to share write access to files via scp?...

I've run into a similar question--setting up "dropbox" directories for shared 
projects. The solution I've found is to use "incron". That package uses the 
kernel-level inotify service to receive a message when a file or directory is 
changed. The "incron" daemon uses a cron-like syntax to specify what object 
(file or directory) to watch, what changes to monitor (ie., file creation, 
completion of write, etc.), and what command to run when a matching change 
happens. This is many orders of magnitude faster than a cron job or writing a 
program to constantly poll() a directory.

Take a look at incron:
