Thee are a few books that tackle these issues but many are not 
"developers" books they are for IT service managers
  - The ITIL series springs to mind.

Other things to add are Release scheduling/upgrades,
Tech support (inc out of hours), Infrastructure management
(server/OS ageing - aka Win XP - etc), Disaster recovery,
and so on.

I once tried to interest a publisher in writing a book
"From Code to User" that focused on these non-development aspects
of projects (in my old job we called it "Delivery Management"(technical 
stuff) as opposed to "Project Management"(financial/schedule stuff) ). 
But the publisher turned it down because the audience was too small...

[ I spent 4 years of my life as a "Delivery Manager" for several large 
projects ( ie. budget >$10m ) before returning to the relative sanity of 
architecture and design! :-) ]
