Re: Leightweight tools for automated svn update + some scripting

As Joseba indicated, try Ansible. Salt Stack also has an "agentless" mode.

I use Ansible to deploy / configure Subversion and mirrors.

And of course, then you can track your configuration changes in version

As this question is somewhat off topic from this mailing list, I suggest
learning more about Ansible & Salt Stack, and asking in the appropriate
forums for those.
