Rather than the set up above, I would suggest having the latex files
include a site-specific file that is ignored by svn (using setprop).
So the version in the repository looks something like the following
(or perhaps a slightly fancier variation where you include the file
"local.sty" if it exists and ignore it otherwise), where "local.sty"
is ignored by svn.





Blah, blah, blah



Then have users with local needs adjust the file "local.sty" as
desired. Users should confirm that their latex file compiles (TeXs)
if the \include{local} line is commented out before they commit the
file (you may be able to use a pre-commit hook to enforce this, or if
you get fancier, have the include only occur if a document class-
option is set, so the test amounts to changing a documentclass option).
