You could run any tool like rsync<> to
mirror the RCS files, and use a crontab(1) file to manage how often
things should be synchronized between physically disparate systems.
The good news is that RCS can easily support a "Multisiting
Capability" with these tools, the bad news (or is it?) is that it's
not built-in.

Creating a mirror of the repository is certainly possible with almost
any reasonable version control system.  Then treating mirrors as
read-only so that changes cannot be checked into them and subsequently
overwritten by the mirror is easy enough.  But I do not think that is
what the original poster was asking about.

That was my understanding of what "Multi-siting" meant in ClearCase vocabulary. It's entirely different from a source control system that supports a "central
repository".  That's my understanding of it, but I actually know nothing more
about ClearCase then what can be groked from the Web.

But indeed, the best way to multi-site RCS is to use one of the later
network-supported source control systems.
