It seems like you are approaching this backwards - whatever originates the 
changes should commit, and perhaps replace the rsyncs with updates at the other 
location(s).   But, if you use subversion, it is smart enough to only commit 
actual differences so it wouldn't hurt to just schedule a fairly frequent commit 
at the top level.  If nothing changed, the commit has no effect.  The down side 
is that subversion wants a complete hidden copy under .svn in every subdirectory 
so the client can detect changes without contacting the repository.  Viewvc is a 
good web server companion for subversion to easily browse revisions and do 
color-coded diffs.
