Puppet or puppet-like software

Recently I installed a number of VMs for our FEs in the office. These
are mostly powered off. While I don't make a lot of system changes,
files like auto.home do change and need to be pushed. I've got a local
script to push these files if they have been changed, but since everyone
in the office wants their own VM, it is hard for me to keep track. I'm
only talking about 5 files at the present time. I suppose that I could
write a script to run from rc.local or from init.d (since we want it to
run before autofs), or possibly cron.  Currently my script pushes the
changed files to each system, and also runs service autofs restart. When
I wrote the initial script, we were not using VMs, and when I changed
these files, then restarting autofs on each system would be necessary.
What I'm looking for is something already written rather than me having
to write yet another script.
