help with subversion (svn) hook script
How to create a subversion server hook script that prevents people from committing changes if they don’t own the lock on the file first?
Svn server is on windows.
P.S. Additional info in this question

Use a pre-commit hook. Pre-commit hook receives 2 arguments:
#  REPOS-PATH (the path to this repository) #  TXN-NAME (the name of the txn about to be committed)
You need to use
svnlook to determine if there are svn:needs-lock files that aren’t locked.
To determine the paths changed by this commit:
svnlook changed $1 --transaction $2
Loop through the files (
$PATH as loop item) in ‘changed’ and determine svn:needs-lock, and if they’re currently locked:
svnlook propget $REPOS-PATH svn:needs-lock $PATH svnlook lock $1 $PATH
Write an to stderr and return non-zero to abort this commit when needed.
You can use
<your repos directory>/hooks/pre-commit and use some batch scripting (or even a full blown program, as long as it’s executable it will be fine). If it returns 0 the commit will be successful; otherwise it will fail.
post-lock.tmpl in that same directory for an example.
# PRE-COMMIT HOOK # # The pre-commit hook is invoked before a Subversion txn is # committed. Subversion runs this hook by invoking a program # (script, executable, binary, etc.) named 'pre-commit' (for which # this file is a template), with the following ordered arguments: # #  REPOS-PATH (the path to this repository) #  TXN-NAME (the name of the txn about to be committed) # # The default working directory for the invocation is undefined, so # the program should set one explicitly if it cares. # # If the hook program exits with success, the txn is committed; but # if it exits with failure (non-zero), the txn is aborted, no commit # takes place, and STDERR is returned to the client. The hook # program can use the 'svnlook' utility to help it examine the txn. # # On a Unix system, the normal procedure is to have 'pre-commit' # invoke other programs to do the real work, though it may do the # work itself too.
