Re: Triming file content before it get commited?

There is no provided client-side pre-commit hook facility (though the
idea poses interesting possibilities). As far as I am aware there are
no support tools that provide this either.

You could write client-side scripts to do this yourself - any number
of scripting languages or shell-script languages will provide the
means to do so - you need to invoke them yourself prior to committing

As far as enforcing a repository policy goes though, you have much
better support - the pre-commit server-side hook would allow you to
peek at the transaction content and validate it's compliance to your
policy. You can then reject non-complying commits, you cannot correct
them server-side however.
