Do educate on which files should have svn:eol-style set to what value, and do encourage developers to use auto-props to automate what they learned, but also install a pre-commit hook script in the repository that absolutely prevents the problem from happening in the future. If you've decided for example that .txt files shall have the svn:eol-style set to native, then write and install a pre-commit hook script that prevents anyone from adding any .txt file that does not have svn:eol-style set to native.
