Are you developing the same project(s)? If you are, there isn't a good
way to maintain or merge duplicate repositories. If you aren't, you
don't really have to ever merge them unless you want to. Merging will
break any revision number references you might have to the old history
(like in trouble tickets, etc.) for the one that is merged. You can
simply move them to the same server as separate repos if you want. If
you use http(s) access you can make separate repositories appear under
the same URL anyway.
