Automate deployment of Python application from multiple VCS repositories

This seems highly do-able with Ansible. They have a git module, if that's your VCS, that fits in here perfectly. 

I would make two lists of variables, the first for repo URL/branch info and the second for their destinations. Then Ansible uses simple YAML to write the commands. Here's an overly simplified version that I'm typing up quick on my phone:

- for each item in /git_variables.yml
  git clone {{ host }} {{ branch }} {{ destination }}

Relevant info is here:

I'm in #python and #ansible as heatmeiser if you need any low level detail.
