Our policies are : "developpers feel like at home" and "tools shall
adapt to developpers". I recognise it is unusual and dissonant. So
developpers use their coding style they are efficient with and I
translate that to something standard. I induce the rules to provide the
developper with something he could have written himself when check-out.

I could find examples of pre-commit hooks, for example to convert
indentation from spaces to tabs or the opposite. Then I could find the
lists of available hooks in the documentation. If I am not mistaken,
there is no hook available in the opposite direction, say in the
check-out process ?

Please, cf my other answer in a separate message.
