Tim will release HTCondor-CE 6 which works with HTCondor 10 this week; HTCondor 10.3.0 expected next week

Group write permissions for the PATh origin are broken due to xrootd-multiuser not having the right group permission to traverse the directory tree to enter into private directories.

A potential workaround is to make the parent directories world-traverseable but not world-readable. We would have to remind users that they need to make their files not world-readable and also investigate what permissions xrootd gives newly written files.

A long term solution is to modify xrootd-multiuser to set the process's supplementary groups before accessing files in group directories.
