>From the sounds of it, your development process should be easily adapatable
to CVs using tags.  When a new release is finalized, you set a tag on that
release.  This will allow you to recreate the release at a later point.  A
single version of a file may have multiple tags on it, so files that do not
change very often may have the same version tagged for multiple releases.
you are already using rcs, so you understand branching.  CVS support for
branches is similar to that used by rcs (cvs uses the rcs file format to
store revisions).

Someone else on this list with more experience can probably advise you on
how to import your rcs project into cvs, but it should be pretty simple.
