Hi. I'm going to attempt to import a git database into Razor which is
linux rcs based. Does the linux version of git use rcs ?

No, the formats are completely different, and you will have to translate.

The problem with using RCS as sync (as base) is that it is least
powerfull of VCS, and as far as I know do not offer place to store
extra information, so conversion from Git to RSS will lose some
information (committership, signed commits and signed merges, signed
tags, etc.).

There is a tool to create fast-import stream from RCS repository,
but I am not sure if there is reverse (fast-import is a common
intermediate fairly VCS_agnostic representation used for fast
conversion between different version control systems).
