just an idea that came to me...
create a few different personal repositories(apt-cacher,apt-proxy,..)
lets say A, B, C ...
have machines 1-10 use A, 11-20 use B, ...
if A is updated on day 1, B is updated on day 7, ...
then when you issue 'apt-get upgrade;apt-get update;' on each machine, it
will upgrade at different times.
