When uploading docs, use rsync -p to set permissions
It turns out that rsync --chmod means "pretend the source files had already had this chmod operation applied to them", and not "chmod the destination files" like you'd expect.
As a result, the -p (--perms) option is also needed, so that rsync will "preserve" the modified permissions. Otherwise, the docs will not be group-writeable as intended, and only the person who made the previous upload will be able to upload them next time.

Thanks, fixed in git for 1.4.10, 1.5.1 (and I fixed the permissions manually for the 1.5.0 upload).
