Please elaborate. What do you mean by 'client on the server side'? Do you
mean on the svn box where the repo's serving, you've also installed or use
svn client and create working folders? And how? I'd be interested in this
method. thanks.

Until this happens, here is a workaround - put a client on the server
with appropriate tie-ins to the pre or post commit hooks. We are using
this approach to add need-locks and eol-style properties to added files.
The only downside is we send the user an email informing them that they
need to update their newly added files (and we provide them a list).

I would like to see the Subversion system one day support server-side
configuration management of repo-wide activities. ie, I don't want to
have
to force, manual, client-side changes (as per things like the
"Standardize
on ASCII type: dos2unix pre-commit hook?" thread started here:
<http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2006-03/0516.shtml>, some text of
which
is commented below) in order to enforce repo-wide policies like standard

ASCII formats, etc.

Is this is Subversions future, however far out it may be?
