[development] Any Drupal Tools for Automating Staging Site Creation?

I've taken a different approach, as said, not up to drupal distro
standards, but I create and configure skel databases, and use scripts to
copy sites, and run sql queries, including modifying some site
variables. Adding a few scripted svn update commands to some of these
scripts might accomplish what you're looking for or might not.  The
code's not pretty, so use at your own risk. 


They only work on linux environments.

Subject: [development] Any Drupal Tools for Automating Staging Site

Hi all,

Has anyone created any tools for automating site setup?

Basically what I'm doing now each night via a script is:
1) Cloning my production site
2) Replacing certain directories with versions checked out from
3) Running a series of Linux commands and SQL queries to set up modules 
that are in development but have not been deployed to production

Whenever I start development on a new module I have to add to my 
mirroring script to automate Drupal setup. I can write some PHP 
functions to encapsulate this, but maybe something already exists?
