Subject Re: Clarifications using Subversion
Date Tue, 12 Apr 2016 17:23:31 GMT
While the other response gives you the clues to (mostly) enforce what 
you want, I strongly encourage you to consider how to avoid using 
tooling to solve what is probably really a management problem.

The more you customize your hooks, the more difficult it might be to 
move your Subversion installation to a new environment, a cloud 
provider, or a commercial offering, just for example.

Hooks are best applied to business rules that are not about people.

You can use them the way you're asking, but long term, you might not 
want to.
