I did have a look at the iForGit. The issue I have is (probably) a one
time thing. Most of the source code is in IFS but in this case I
inherited an older RDi workspace that has this project in it. I think
it's a little out of date and out of sync with the source on the IBMi. I
could just recreate the project using the IBMi source but I was hoping
RDi had a better way to load or import a source member individually.

You can also mount the IFS directories on your local disk using SSHFS and
operate revision control in that fashion.
And you can use iForGit for the OFS portions and separately check in the
project data from your RDi workspace in another dir and use the same
repository as the main repo.Source
There's all sorts of way to do this.

Richard talks about his iForGit can work with RDi, but with projects?

- If you move to working in the IFS, it's a no-brainer.
- If you want to stay in source physical files in the OFS, then

I've got a source file on the IBMi with some source members that have
been edited separately, and more recently, than the copy I have in a
project in rdi. Is there an automated way to update the local source
file in a project from the remote copy, if the remote has a newer
