|Can EGit be used to version control Linked Folder content [message #996935]

I have some Eclipse projects which are organised as linked folders, either local directories or RSE directories.|
It would be very convenient if I could version control the project content in one place via Egit/Eclipse locally (Team: ...) without needing to place the actual (remote) folders' content under git each on its own system, and have to run command-line git remotely.
Is there any means of working in this way, or does Egit only work with actual local content ? (or folders under git remotely).
Needless to say I have tried this already, but with 'Team:Add files' get "Failed to add files to index ...", the only thing apparently under git is the .project file, with the linked folder content being unacknowledged.
Also trying 'Team:Commit', "An internal error occurred
Entry not found by path: MyProj/MyRemoteLinkedFolder/subdir/firstfile.py"
This might turn out to be a 'Linked Folders' or 'Eclipse FS' issue rather than a 'Egit / Version control' issue ...
