   is it possible to copy an existing rcs repository like:

   cp -r /data/repository1/*  /data/repository2

   and work on the copy with rcs commands like working on the original?

I guess it depends on what you mean by "like".  While RCS operations
on repository2 are certainly possible, modifications there will not
reflect in repository1.  Also, as RCS makes use of permission bits,
you would want to preserve them, too (i.e., use ‘cp -p -r OLD NEW’).
