I'd look at some of the multi-site algorithms that people have applied

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

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:

Neeto.  I spent all weekend hacking away at a flex/bison RCS info lexer/parser.  I figured it would be a nice easy way to get my feet wet with flex and bison...

Thanks for the reply.
