We use ZSyncer to push changes from development to staging, and 
then to multiple production systems.  It requires some carefulness
because zsyncer is very very slow when pushing a lot of stuff at once.
(It basically exports in memory the objects to be synced,
transfers the export data across the network, and imports them
on the remote machine with an xmlrpc call. All three stages of this
process can potentially take a long time.)

We're also having issues with zsyncer reporting incorrect sync status
(both falsely reporting out-of-date status, AND falsely reporting OK status).
I hope to block out some time to work on zsyncer soon and fix this.

I don't know of any existing tool to do that for zope.
You'd have to write your own.
