I meant to add:

2) If you want to guarantee that these properties are added on each
and every file of the above types, write a pre-commit hook to reject
any commit that doesn't match these guidelines. This will catch those
users who forgot to set up their config files. In the error message
you print in the pre-commit hook, you can inform the user how to set
up their config file properly, or point them to the URL of a pre-made
config file they can download and use.
