Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe BSD style Unix
variants create files with a default group of the directory in which
they are placed. To get this behavior out of Sys V variants you may be
able to set the sgid bit on the directory.
In short if you would like files created to have the group staff by
default you should set the directory group to staff.
chgrp staff .
