Like cvs or subversion or similar?

How about rsync?

A package maybe?

Might help if you actually stated what it is you are trying to do
*exactly*, if it were me I'd be using pulled pork or oinkmaster and
pointing it to a local master server. I might also look into doing
rsync for local boxes too, so I could ensure the same rules/configs go
to the appropriate boxes.
