Provide much more git functionality

Most IDEs use a similar pattern for git support. I would like to see git functionlity similar to what I'm used to in my other IDEs. For example being able to commit/checkout multiple files, work on branches, etc. From the git window you can also see at a glance the files that have changed in your project.

To see an example of an IDEs git functionality, look at rsudios git support. This is where we should be heading with DSX.

If we followed an approach similar to rstudio, we would be able checkout a dsx project from a git repository and be able to work with all the notebooks and scripts within the project.

The git integration would also complement jupyter labs by making dsx more like an ide:

    +1 to Victor's comment to support all git repos, probably via git ssh protocol.

    Also: don't limit to GitHub. There are much more Git repositories used: BitBucket, custom, etc.

    Yep, and please support private repositories as well - if we need to export confidential customer notebooks to a git repo, it HAS to be private repo.

    Hi guys. I am a Data Scientist @IBM. We are using github behind the ibm firewall and what we do must be secure. It will be useful if we could connect our DSX projects to IBM github repo. Currently there is no such functionality and it is such a shame. I hope this can be integrated in the future for us.
