Hehe, yeah I guess that'd do it! Was hoping for something a little more

Require your users to insert this text themselves before committing.
If this is too much work for them, write a script they can use to do it on
the client side. Write a pre-commit hook which rejects files which do not
have this text, with an explanation for the user of how to add it.
