RCS does not use MySQL or any other SQL engine.
I am looking to use a SQL backend for RCS.
RCS is a specific tool unlike source control management (SCM), it is a
text file database. There are no SQL based RCS implimentations that I know
of, that was why I asked in the first place.
A RCS file is comprised of:
meta data bout the state of the file
0..N reverse deltas from current source
meta data about the various revisions represented,
including who, when, why.
