I think the best way is to keep a clear and well-made .gitignore file, and 
foster a culture that respects not changing it without good reason. Hard 
constraints on contributors are usually counter-productive in the long run.

However, you can make pre-receive hooks in repositories that reject pushes 
based on anything you can express in a script. Example:
