Pre-commit svn wrapper check

From: David Coppit <subversion_at_coppit.org>

My systems staff doesn't want to change /usr/bin/svn, so I have put my
umask-svn wrapper in a different path. The problem is getting all my
developers to make sure that path is in their PATH. If they don't run the
wrapped version, the database will get corrupted.

Here's a pre-commit script that will double check that svn+ssh is getting
the svn wrapper.


   use strict;

   my $repository_machine = 'ENTER YOUR REPOSITORY MACHINE HERE';
   my $wrapped_svn_path = 'ENTER THE PATH TO YOUR SVN WRAPPER HERE';

   my $user = `whoami`;
   chomp $user;

   my $svn = `ssh $user\@$repository_machine which svn`;
   chomp $svn;

   if ($svn ne "$wrapped_svn_path/svn")
   You are blocked from using the repository until you set your PATH environment
   so that $wrapped_svn_path appears first, so that you will run the wrapped
   version of svn instead of the system one.

   If we let you continue, you could corrupt the database! Here's the svn that
   you ran: "$svn"

   exit 0;

I hope that helps anyone else in the same boat as me.
