I'd look at some of the multi-site algorithms that people have applied to CVS over the years, and apply one of them to the RCS files. Or just map a branch in R_1 to the trunk of R_2 and do a series of co/ci operations to copy the history over, applying tags as necessary. Then use CVS normally to merge the top of the old R_2 trunk to the R_1 trunk.

If you end up doing something like this yourself from scratch then my rinfo program can help analyze the meta-data stored in the RCS files. It's located at the following URL:

Currently we have 2 repo's with the same project.  R_1/mod_A,

R_2/mod_a to R_1.

I know that a project can be moved from repo to repo with the only real
impact being to checked out copies [1], [2].  Is it possible to move
R_2/mod_a to R_1/mod_a without losing history?  Or would it be better
to move the unwanted project out of the way and replace (copy) it with
the new one?
