There is not. You must configure it on every client.

If you like, you can write a pre-commit hook which rejects the commit
of any type of file that you never want to have in the repository. In
the error message printed by such a hook, you can inform your users
how to configure their clients properly, for example by directing
them to a pre-made config file that matches your specifications.
