Hello Rez,

There are many pre-commit validations that one can think of.
One of them is banning commit of specific files. Another is checking
for unwanted content (e.g. -d debug flag for Perl CGI files).

There is more than one way you can choose for doing this:
1) Add a line in commitinfo per each banned file
2) From commitinfo call a script or application with the directory
path & name of commited file (and perhaps committed version), and let
it do the validation. This is the method we use in Jungo.
