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?

    Use a pre-commit hook. Pre-commit hook receives 2 arguments:

    #   [1] REPOS-PATH   (the path to this repository)
    #   [2] 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.

    See post-lock.tmpl in that same directory for an example.

    # 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:
    #   [1] REPOS-PATH   (the path to this repository)
    #   [2] 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.
