How to run a program before "Import" and "Add" CVS commands

How to run a program before "Import" and "Add" CVS commands

Hello all,

I need run best practice programs before any "Import/Add" in CVSNT server. These programs would have to validate some rules and whether the file which the user is trying to import/add is not ok, the operation have to be canceled.

I´ve been researching and I only found how to get pre/post "Commit". But it does not work, because The files could not even be created on the server whether they are not ok according to our best practice.

Here are the versions of the CVS :
 (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2260
 (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382

Thanks for the help.

Now all that I need to do is implement and make some tests.
