I'm not sure that 'rsync' counts as a lot of automation, although you
would have to be fairly careful to make sure it notifies you of updates
if you run it via cron (email you the results of the rsync will do,
although it'll probably create one even if the run doesn't notice any

you'd also need to specify files that aren't to be updated (server
configs, logs, etc), but that's similarly fairly easy to do

works over SSH too, for the paranoid.
