How can a project be divided up between two repositories?

Suppose I have two sets of files that I want under version control, Site
A and Site B, containing files as follows:

Site A:

Site B:

I want to find a way to specify:
If a change is made to File_a, it applies only to Site A. Call this Group 1.
If a change is made to File_e, it applies only to Site B. Call this
Group 2.
If a change is made to File_b, File_c or File_d, the change gets applied
to both Site A and Site B. Call this Group 3.

The files have to be in a certain location relative to a directory
structure. For example, File_a and File_e must be in the same directory.

Also, in some cases, File_a and File_e have the same name.

 From time to time it may turn out that I want to move a particular file
from Group 3 to Group 1 or Group 2.

The way we're doing it now is that Site A is in one repository and Site
B is in another repository, which works and is sort of simple, but it
has a big disadvantage in that if files in Group 3 get changed, they
must be manually copied to from one site to another. This is a little
worse in our case because in reality there are more than two sites
