Submission + - How to do scalable website code deployment?

At the moment we are creating a tarball of our entire code repo, scp-ing it to each web server, extracting the file, then doing a directory mv operation (mv codeBase codeBase.old ; mv codeBase)

This method makes small updates very expensive as we have to deploy the entire code base for changes that only affect a few files. What methods do you guys use to distribute code to many servers?
