How to prevent empty log messages?

I'm sending this message to both the TortoiseSVN and SVN mailing lists
because I'm not sure if this is a client side or server side issue.

I want to setup the subversion server I have to not allow empty log
messages. I read a few (very old) archived messages on the TortoiseSVN
mailing list when TSVN was still around version 1. The old posts I
read spoke of TortoiseSVN actually enforcing the "minimum length" for
log messages. I've also heard of the server-side implementing a
post-commit (maybe pre commit?) hook for this as well. I'm not sure
which approach to take, assuming both options are open. I imagine this
will probably have to be server-side, since I don't want to have
everyone have to setup their client.

If anyone could show me how to prevent empty log messages, I'd
appreciate it. If this requires a post(pre)-commit hook, could someone
post the code for that and tell me where to put it? Thanks.
