The master can reach all the slaves via SSH directly, but the slaves can NOT reach the master, 'cause master it's located in a private net. This why the master server monitors private networks and poll the slaves for informations about monitored devices from slaves.

What I would to do is to use the master-server as master repository for all configs. I could use some scripts too to copy what I need from the slaves to the master but have no idea what to copy and how to merge it all.
Use SVN, set up subversion to check into a central server. That's where your repo lives; you may have to modify slightly to suit your networking constraints...
