you could disallow locking, by setting an alias ci to ci -l so that all
check-ins are locked to the author every single time, by the shell rc file
(.bashrc) by adding the line:

alias ci=ci -l

As the homepage<> says:

You may also find more information about RCS by looking at man pages (man
foo at the shell prompt) on your system, including:

    man rcsintro
    man rcs
    man rcsfile
    man ci
    man co
    man rcsdiff
    man rlog
    man rcsmerge
    man rcsclean
    man rcsfreeze

also RCS comes with the source copy of Walter Tichy's paper on

if you find none of these sources answer your questions let us know.
