Leightweight tools for automated svn update + some scripting

Hi all,

I'm doing a bit research for our somewhat small company how to best
update home grown services, web applications and configurations on
production and testing servers. We have only few of them, but many
more working copies all over the place with various layouts, some
applications even consist of independent wcs in different folders for
historical reasons and such.

There's a lot of tools available around the subject "continuous
delivery", things like Puppet, Chef etc. are mentioned very often, but
all of those look very heavyweight to me currently. Some come with
their own web server, database, need "configurations" implemented in
programming languages we have no experience with, are really bad
debuggable locally and whatever... What I'm currently more interested
in is something between doing things manually and such things like
Puppet, because I don't seem to be very good at finding such software,
if it exists.

What I would need is something polling some repos, like commit
monitors, only server based without GUI and such, and on commits
updates some working copies. Additionally, I need to be able to at
least restart services. I guess this covers around 95% of my use
cases and reads like some flexible commit monitor and a scripting
interface, but I hope that maybe some of this scripting could be
avoided and replaced by really simple configurations. Of course this
would only be useful if such an application doesn't bring it's own web
server, database and Ruby runtime environment...

Do you know of something like that available? Thanks!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Thorsten Schöning
