You can examine the contents of files being committed (using svnlook)
but you cannot change it. The function of a revision control system
is to store the files that the developers commit, not to change them
after having been committed. Make your developers do the correct code
formatting or whatever before they commit. You can write a pre-commit
hook to enforce this rule, if that's required for your organization.
Developers will surely soon learn.
