For long we are planning to remove GNU rcs from base, after a failed attempt before FreeBSD 10.0. Let see where we are to be able to remove it from FreeBSD

why should we remove it?
What will replace it?  it's an integral part of many people's systems.

Is there a non gnu RCS with the same features?

surprised to hear so many people are dependent upon having rcs in their base system. there are options though - for example OpenBSD uses OpenRCS in their base:
I don't see what is surprising about it.
It's been common "best practice" for decades to keep all your files in /etc under source control. RCS fits he bill well and many people have it in their muscle memory.

heh - not trying to start a bike shed, and I certainly have used RCS in that manner in the past, although I supplanted it for a configuration management engine quite a while ago as the industry moved towards more distributed environments where systems automation became more practical.

regardless - sounds like people still using rcs should be able to kick the tires on OpenRCS and see if it fits their needs.
