SVN-vs-CVS implementation question

I'd like to setup a repository which would have the head branch
automatically synchronized to a set of potentially many geographically
distributed servers. I do *not* want to synch the entire repo, I just
want the head branch.

The implementation plan with CVS would be to use:

- cvsup for a synchronization operation

- triggers to kick off a synchronization operation on a commit

- polling every minute or two with 'cvs history' to determine if the
clients had missed a trigger event

What would the equivalent actions be in SVN? I've been looking around for
something like cvsup for SVN that doesn't copy the entire repo and haven't
been able to find something applicable other than just 'svn update'. I
also haven't been able to find anything like triggers so far in the svn
book. Would "svnlook history" run on the root of the repo be good for a
lightweight polling check to see if anything in the repo had changed since
the last 'svn update' or is there a better way to do that operation?
