Release Management Software

I'm looking around for a simple tool to help manage file pushes to a website/web application. Is there such-a-thing as "Release Management" software?

To clear up some of the vagueness, I'm looking for something like this. A group of developers wants some files put online. They go to this theoretical tool, create a ticket, enter their file paths/repository-location into a form, along with any config file changes or other information.
Then, the Release Manager would go to this tool and have all the information they'd need to push the wanted changes live, possibly with some options to automate the file push. (In a crazy universe, a tester would look at it too!)
Does such a beast exist? It seems like the kind of thing programmers would have tried to solve 1000 different ways in-house, meaning there might be one or two decent products out there. I'm just not sure what to search on.
I'm aware of general ticketing systems like RT, but I'm looking for something that's specifically geared towards release managements.
Any suggestions or pointers towards things to look at are appreciated. Any "Why don't you just build it in Ruby on Rails" responses will be ignored. (-;
