Neither Linked Folders nor RSE is supported by EGit at this moment. Not even ignoring them is complete, though,some patches are underway to fix that part. The linked
(target) resources should be tracked in the location they appear, as normal files.
Supporting RSE would probably require a *lot* of reorganizing within EGit/JGit. The core of EGit, i.e. JGit, assume all resources are files in the end and that access
to the file system is a cheap thing. I'm not aware of any plans in that direction. If you can mount the remote file system using NFS, CIFS, FuSE or something like that,
that will probably work, though not very fast.
