I cannot say anything about revc but it seems that someone with Tom's expertise would be needed to bring it up to maturity.  If Tom is not interested in it we won't see it developed further.

Tla (GNU Arch 1) has architecture limitations so it won't see improvements necessarily to be competitive with newer SCMs like git or Hg or bzr.  I should make a new release with some minor interface improvements but there is no major change.  So yes, GNU Arch had its glorious days but it has passed its prime... but in the history of SCMs GNU Arch will always has its place; git, Hg, bzr, etc. all have been influenced by GNU Arch.

Yes, bzr is now the GNU Bazaar.

You're welcome.
After a bit of reading about GNU/Arch, it seems clear that this
wonderful piece of software is falling into oblivion :-(
Tom is interested by something else, some devs left for bazaar, some
went to git etc etc, and even the FSF is advocating for bazaar-ng.
I don't think that tla 1.x is going to see a lot more dev, and revc
hasn't (yet?) seen someone continuing the path opened by Tom.
Is there somewhere any official position on tla's future ? Is there
someone interested in its (revc) revival ?
