This project is not covered by Drupal’s security advisory policy.

I use the following symbolic links structure on our servers and wrote a bash script for handling Drupal updates years ago.

Within this structure and this drush command, it is now possible to do that via drush.

Here is the very specific structure this command deals with for multi-drupalupdate and multi-create:

drupal/
|-- 6.x -> drupal-6.14
|-- 6.x_backup
|-- 6.x_profiles
|-- 6.x_sites
|   |-- all   
|   |-- default
|   |-- example.com
|   |   |-- files
|   |   |-- modules
|   |   `-- themes
|   `-- sub.example.com 
|       |-- files
|       |-- modules
|       `-- themes 
`-- drupal-6.14
    |-- includes
    |-- misc
    |-- modules
    |-- profiles -> ../6.x_profiles
    |-- scripts
    `-- sites  -> ../6.x_sites

Commands

drush multi-drupalupdate
Updates the installation if there is a new minor release available and preserves all detected symlinks, like sites and profiles above
drush multi-create
Creates a Drupal multisite installation, supports usage of drush_make makefiles
drush multi-site

drush multi-status

Notes

This command still under development. Not for use on production sites.
Use at own risk!

Before running, make backups of your sites and data!
Try a dry run with -s / --simulate and -v / --verbose options first to see what will happen.

For something like a roadmap take a look at the todo list within the documentation.
