Pre commit hook to check svn externals and report back if they are not relative path

Hi,  We are using svn multisite and we are having hard time with the svn externals as users are adding externals with the hard coded path. So we want to do a pre commit hook to reject if the svn externals are not relative path.  We found a similar one at disabling-creation-of-svn-externals-is-this-possible in the forum but the REPONAME=$(${ECHO} ${REPOS} | rev | cut -d / -f1 | rev) is not giving the path of the svn externals.   Any help with this regards is very much appreciated.  SVNLOOK=/usr/bin/svnlook GREP=/bin/grep PRINTF=/usr/bin/printf MKTEMP=/bin/mktemp RM=/bin/rm REPONAME=$(${ECHO} ${REPOS} | rev | cut -d / -f1 | rev)  # Block all users from creating svn:externals in this repo SVN_TMP=$(${MKTEMP})  SVN_TMP_DIRS=$(${MKTEMP}) ${SVNLOOK} dirs-changed --transaction "${TXN}" "${REPOS}" > ${SVN_TMP_DIRS} while read LINE; do   ${SVNLOOK} propget --verbose --transaction "${TXN}" "${REPOS}" svn:externals ${LINE} | ${GREP} -q "svn:externals"  if [ $? == 0 ] ; then   ${PRINTF} "\nMyCompanyName - SVN pre-commit hook message:\nThe policies of this SVN repo (${REPONAME}) prohibit the creation of svn:external properties.\n" > ${SVN_TMP}  ${CAT} ${SVN_TMP} 1>&2  ${RM} -f ${SVN_TMP} ${SVN_TMP_DIRS}  exit 1   fi done < ${SVN_TMP_DIRS} ${RM} -f ${SVN_TMP} ${SVN_TMP_DIRS}

Victor, I hope you reached out to WANdisco support before now - I just found your posting.  First, if you're using "SVN MultiSite" then you need to use a pre-replication hook, not a pre-commit hook.  Beyond that, did you figure out the problem with your script?
