Enable Git in RStudio

RStudio has integration with Git but in Data Science Experience it is not activated. It would be very nice to have Git and Github working.

    Just a note on this is that the linux instance that RStudio Server is running on does not have git on it at all (e.g. system("git") from the R prompt. Even if we can't get git integration, simply having git on the core linux instance would be a big step forward. Thanks.
