I use PRCS, and there are debs. PRCS keeps everything, including empty
directories. It's propper branch/merge/rename etc support mean I keep all my
machines in the one project as seperate branches, and I can merge changes
across between them painlessly. It has some limitations, like no network
transport (I use rsync instead), but it is ideal for something like this;
simple, easy to use, reliable, and nothing more.
