Consider the following scenario:
- I have
rwxaccess to a directory as a member of the group id of the directory.
- The system admin does not let users run
chown(see this thread for details)
How can I take recursive ownership of the directory?
I believe I can do the following, assuming that I want to own
cp -R A B rm -R A mv B A
but this is tedious and can require a large amount of space if
A is large.
