Is september still realistic? Is there anything we could do to get Insights 2.3 to work against 10.6.1 ? Like a manual edit of something or a dependency update... ?

As far as I'm aware, Insights for ArcGIS v3.0 is planned for release near the end of September.

There are no workarounds to configure Insights for ArcGIS v2.3 to work with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1. Sorry.
Hope this helps,
So from My Esri when I click on the reference link for Workforce it sends me over to a page that right at the top says this is which version of Workforce will work with which version of ArcGIS Enterprise. Insights just sends you to a page that says that you need Portal for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Server. You have to go hunting through the rest of the Insights help documentation to find a compatibility matrix, and unfortunately it is out of date.
Without stumbling upon this forum post I would have had no idea that Insights 2.3 is not compatible with 10.6.1. This is the only warning people get in the Portal for ArcGIS help documentation upgrade guide:
"Ensure any Esri apps you have configured with your portal, such as Workforce for ArcGIS and Insights for ArcGIS, are at a version that's compatible with the 10.6.1 portal before upgrading. You can upgrade any apps as needed after upgrading the portal."
If I decide to go ahead and upgrade ArcGIS Enterprise from 10.6 to 10.6.1 right now, do I need to uninstall Insights for ArcGIS 2.3 first?
I upgraded a test environment from 10.6 to 10.6.1 that already had Insights 2.3 and it still works. I created a brand new 10.6.1 environment today and was surprised to find out that 2.3 can't install on it, yet it worked when I upgraded to 10.6.1 and it was already there. So to answer your question, you can go ahead and try to upgrade a test environment without touching Insights to see if it works for you like it did for me, but you'll have to wait until the end of September for the new release if you're having any problems.
Also, you're totally right, all the related documentation I can find doesn't talk about this:
Compatibility with ArcGIS Enterprise—Insights reference | ArcGIS (No column for 10.6.1)
Get started—Insights Get Started | ArcGIS ("you must have a base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment of version 10.5 or later", which is wrong)
I actually have a support case open over a minor display issue I am having with Insights, but the support analyst hasn't told me that Insights 2.3 is incompatible with 10.6.1! Not even Esri support knows, apparently! I'll have to tell him this and close the case...
Anyways, glad I found this forum post! Clearly there was no other way of knowing this. I guess I'll have to wait to give our end users 10.6.1, since they're expecting Insights!
I just upgraded to 10.6.1 but now I am stuck with a "mostly working" install but no Insights. I could not get it to work correctly with the upgrade and no supporting install/upgrade for Insights. ESRI, you really should have documented this better and placed a disclaimer here.
