I installed Dropbox to run a symlink application in my Public folder. The thing is, every time a file gets updated (downloaded) in my dropbox, it looses the read permission for 'other' group, and the I have to fix it with chmod +r updated_file command or else I get a 403 error. How can I make dropbox download files with the desired permission?

I just realised this is more of a dropbox question, sorry :P

Thanks.

This post might be helpful. It seems he solved it, although you'll have to modify it to run in a userland environment: http://superuser.com/questions/549591/how-to-preserve-ownership-and-permissions-in-dropbox
