Thanks for that upgrade. I am a bit confused: I thought the actual
maintainer of vc is  Andre Spiegel <address@hidden>, although I know
that vc was/is Eric's brainchild.

Be it as it may, I have tons of files under RCS, so I am not very keen
to try to migrate them to git. I might give it a try and use the old vc
package Xemacs still ships, but it might not be possible....
