This is the TortoiseSVN list, so either you're in the wrong place or
you've typo'd. I'll assume the latter.

Set the svn:needs-lock property on any file which requires locking.
You can do this automatically for new files as they're added by
setting an auto-prop in the *client* config file, but the user can
change/bypass/override this. If it's an absolute requirement, install
a pre-commit hook script to reject any commit containing files with
those extensions lacking needs-lock.
