Great that you got it working. Please mark the thread as solved.
To answer your query I need to know the acl for /home/josh. You can find that using the following command:
The reason I am asking for this information because it appears to me that earlier you have setup acl for the only at /home/josh level but did not perform it recursively. Then you setup acl at /home/josh/Dev/bell_network_stuff/git/dev/static_test which didn't work because the user was not able to get into /home/josh/Dev itself then how it can reach so deep in the path.
I will be able to say for sure if I know how acl is set on /home/josh
