Rsync over ssh is about as good as it gets for remotely updating files. 
  If they can assemble a tree that matches the directory structure, 
'rsync -av' will show a list of files that are different (and thus 
updated) and you can repeat it if you want - no output means the remote 
side is identical.

You'd probably really want to wrap this with a version control system 
like subversion to get history, logging, rollback capability, etc. so 
the changes would be made in one or more working copies, committed to 
the subversion repository, then updated in a staging copy (where you 
might do some tests and sanity checking) and then the staging copy would 
be pushed to the real servers with rsync.
