To update the repositories, as a cron job for the 'rhodecode' user, run:
python scripts/update-repos --repos-dir /opt/rhodecode/git_repos

+Upgrading the Rhodecode instance
+================================
+
+The rhodecode-setup script also supports update of the Rhodecode to the
+specific tag or branch, while doing the reinstallation of the Rhodecode
+automatically. Downgrade of the database is not supported by the Rhodecode
+tools, so bare this in mind when updating to an older version/tag/branch.
+
+To update the system to a specific tag/branch run the following command
+from the rhodecode-config base directory:
+
+ python scripts/rhodecode-setup --rhodecode-config config/production.ini \
+ --rhodecode-usr $USR --rhodecode-branch $TAG \
+ --rhodecode-checkout-dir $CO_DIR --dbname $DB_NAME \
+ --assume-yes --update
+
+ Explaining variables:
+ * $USR: Rhodecode system user (defaults is: rhodecode)
+ * $TAG: Tag or branch in the Rhodecode cloned repository to which
+ the code base will be updated.
+ * $CO_DIR: path to the directory where Rhodecode was previously cloned.
+ * $DB_NAME: Database name for Rhodecode (default is: rhodecode)
