file, so now I use Subversion to keep all copies synchronized. I simply
add or change an entry in once place and it merges it to all the others.

copy's top-level directory, and it will recursively figure out which
files need to be added instead of you having to explicitly add each one.
I believe Subversion 1.1 will allow this from the command line as well,
but I could be mistaken.

The other option would be to expose your repository using a WebDAV
interface, in which additions and deletions immediately take affect in
the repository. This will work only if you use the Apache server, of
course. See the Appendix in the Subversion Book for more info on your
