I think changing the protocol to return checksums of any server-modified
would be ideal. This way, if you are not modifying files on the server
there is no penalty in terms of network bandwidth.

Would these checksums include only file contents, or would they also
properties? It would be nice to also be able to modify file properties
with a
pre-commit hook.

This issue of not being able to modify things on the server side is
tremendous pain in my environment as well. I strongly encourage the svn

developers to consider some viable approach to deal with this issue. In
you are interested, my goals are:

- Transparently reformat source code (as many others on the list have
   - In a large development group it is difficult and expensive to train
   - Having to run wrapper scripts interferes with the ability to use
tool plugins
- Adjusting file properties (e.g. make all .sh files have svn:eol-style
   - Training and support is an issue making sure everyone has
customized their
     client's auto properties correctly
