Re: Is that possible to enforce lock-modify-unlock model in a repository

I'm not sure how forcing locks on every file will improve your
situation. But, as everyone else mentioned, you can put the property
"svn:needs-lock" on every file.

I'm not sure why you say autoprops is not a good solution since it
will automatically add this property to every file you create.

Maybe you're talking about an enforcement mechanism to ensure that
this property is set? After all, a user can remove the property, or if
the user doesn't have their conf file setup correctly, the
svn:needs-lock won't be set.

I have a hook that will check properties and prevent commits if the
properties on that file aren't setup correctly. If someone removes
svn:needs-lock or creates a file without this property, they won't be
able to commit any changes unless they attach svn:needs-lock back on
the file.

Will this help?
