Yes, it's explained in the locking section of the book.

Yes, most every project does that. It's explained in chapter 5 of
the book, which is all about repository administration (and 'hooks',
in this case.)

It seems like you've got a very specific set of behaviors and
features in your mind, and want Subversion to conform to them. As
someone said already, that might not always be possible. A better
strategy might be to sit down with a nice cup of tea, and spend an
afternoon reading the book straight through. I get the impression
that you've not yet done this, that you aren't really aware of what
Subversion is capable of. (You keep sending mails asking "How do I
make subversion do X? And Y? and Z"?)

You may have to change your processes to adapt to Subversion, rather
than the other way around.
