How will this work in visual studio code with a workspace setup? I would like to be able to do a pull-from in all the repositories in the workspace, followed by a syncronization, except if there is a merge conflict.

Did you find a solution to this or an alternative?

Here is a solution for MacOSX:
Im running that from my root repo folder ( no .git in that folder )

~/Documents/repos/
~/Documents/repos/repo1
~/Documents/repos/repo2
/usr/bin/find . -maxdepth 1 -type d -print | parallel --eta 'echo {} && git -C {} pull'
