Thanks Nick. I ended up going with etckeeper and like it so far. The Debian package does an initial commit upon install so if you want to ignore any additional files (etckeeper ignores some files by default), you need to create a .gitignore file in /etc/ before installing the package.

I also read about Puppet and CFEngine, which seem like great tools, but I think their main purpose if for deploying an identical configuration to several machines.
