Unless I'm missing some complexity here, I've implemented
automated-updates for certain "system" svn-controlled directories
across all of the machines in my environment. Essentially on each box,
I do a checkout (read-only access to repo) of the appropriate directories,
which holds core config files needed on large sets of machines (sudoers,
web server configs, web server rc scripts, monitoring scripts, etc.)

Then there's a cronjob that goes off nightly (could be more often if
necessary) and essentially does a "svn -q update". (it does a bunch of
other things too, such as notice that the script itself will be updating
and re-exec after the update, installing files into the appropriate
locations if necessary, "svn update" other specific system-WCs, etc.)

I can also run the script manually to update as necessary on any set of
