The contents of an Eclipse workspace directory are used to remember the state of your work between sessions. Project content directories are something else entirely. You invite confusion by keeping project data in a workspace directory, or a workspace directory in project contents. This is particularly true when you want any given project to be part of multiple workspaces. Do yourself a favor and keep them separate, regardless of whatever version control system you're using.|
For Egit, there's one additional issue: there are potentially three ways to import Git projects but apparently not all of them work reliably. Two are choices under "File -> Import...", the third uses the Git Repositories view. I always use this third option, as follows:
1) Open the Git Repositories view, or switch to the Git Repository Exploring perspective, which includes the Git Repositories view by default.
2) If you already have an existing local repository, add it to the list using the toolbar item by that name. If you don't have a local clone yet, use the "Clone a Git repository" toolbar item to create one and add it to the list.
3) Run "Import Projects..." from the right-click menu of the newly added entry for the repository.
