For truly remote container (my old iMac doesn't support docker, so I use a docker daemon on a Raspberry Pi for hobby) the project files was not sent to /workspace folder. Not a big problem because Git is available in the container. Just need to create a remote Git repo (Gitlab/Github) for the project files.

Thanks
