Hi, Bob,

Any such kind of policy is implemented client-side, and thus can always be circumvented.

May I suggest a different approach: Protect your SVN repository behind authentication (either username/password, or ssh, or client certificates). Then only allow access for those users once they have signed the privacy policy on a different channel (e. G. on paper, or via a web form, etc... - the web form way can be easily automated...)

And make sure that the policy does not allow to pass the contents of a working copy to others which did not sign the agreement. :-)

Best regards
