You could simply cron a pull-update cycle and do updates at scheduled
times, or you could go the automated workflow/continuous integration
(Jenkins, etc.) route.

As the service has matured and continues to mature, the need to access these files via sFTP will continue to diminish, but for the time being it needs to be supported. The site-specific files need to be publicly accessible.  Some examples include:
