don't know, as it's been a year since I've played with it on debian.
However, that was one of the big things I requested, and from reading the
linuxconf web pages, it seems he has added it, though I'm not sure how it
does it. Why RCS? if it uses it's own system of just versioning the files,
wouldn't that be good enough as well?
