hi geir,

may be this solution is works for you:

with every commit in one module, you place a dummy file in a specific
directory to this module.
you set up a cron job that checks this for this file regularly.
if it finds it,
  it checks out and copies the module to the desired place, e.g. to the
staging server directories.
  it deletes the dummy file.

i set this up for automatic javadoc generation, since rebuilding the all
javadoc on
commit of a single file would be too slow. we also use it for regression

hope that helps,
