I deployed jspwiki at work for our team's internal use. So I am still
exploring it.
What I found out that jrcs used to be a component of Apache Commons
project. But it is now moved to codehaus. [1] But looking at the
project on codehaus [2] it is clear that the project is not being
maintained at all.

Looking at some pages on jspwiki wiki it seems that jrcs is not being
used now and the old rcs mechanism is deprecated. [3] The wiki also
states that java's internal diff routines are being used now. So it
should be possible to get read of jrcs. I will check at work tomorrow
to see what page versioning mechanism is used by default.
