Subject: permissions on a directory

Hello Managers,

I've searched high and low and tried all possible combinations, but I am
stumped.  I need to set permissions on a folder that temporarily give a
handful of users the ability to write to a folder that is owned by a certain
user.  I can't change the group permissions, because the group can't write,
and the other can't even be allowed to see the folder.   So, the only
alternative is to give the users the ability to read, write and delete as the
user who owns the folder.

Am I making this harder, or is there no solution?  setgid, setuid, and sudo
don't seem to apply, unless sudo can be assigned to a user other than root.
