The GNU Project contains two RCS: RCS and Arch.  Arch is distributed,
RCS is not.  I don't think these are really "politics": it's about
building a consistent system, the GNU system.

If Arch was technically so bad that it would impede development of the
GNU system, it would obviously be a bad choice for the GNU Project
(e.g., CVS was used because it could do more things than RCS); but that
is clearly not the case, quite the contrary.  :-)
