I'm not even sure that 4.6.3 is the version of eclipse that my RDi is based upon - how can I find this info?

Within your RDI folder there is a file called ".eclipseproduct".
This file should contain the Eclipse Version for the product you have installed.

name=Eclipse Platform

Another way to check is to look at "Installation Details" from the Help menu.
In the Features tab you can locate the "Eclipse Platform" feature name to locate the version information:

Version: 4.6.3.v20170301-0400
Build id: M20170301-0400

Is there a newer version of egit that will work with my RDi version?
I would suggest you install the version of EGit that IBM included in the installation manager install.
org.eclipse.egit ( "Git integration for Eclipse"

In RDi I have gone to window > preferences > General > Network Connections > SSH2 > General and confirmed that SSH2 home: is the correct directory and Private keys: has id_rsa

Go to the "Key Management" tab and attempt to "Load Existing Key". You should be able to load your private key. If you can't then you might have generated a key that RDI can't understand.

Will future versions of RDi have git capabilities built in without having to jump through these hoops?
IBM is still building RDI on a version of Eclipse that was released in 2016.
