Betreff: [PATCH] SSH agent support for Ivy's SSH and SFTP transports


Howdy, all --


The SSH library used by ant, jsch, has a series of optional additional components available
adding support for communicating with an external keystore. I've been using these successfully
(with a number of users) over the course of the last few weeks, and would like to submit the
patch I'm using for this support upstream.


Is there a reasonable chance of getting this, or something like it, merged? SSH agent support
is critical for single-sign-on authentication to resources accessed via SSH or SFTP.


I'm aware that the lack of test cases is unusual, but I'm unclear on how one would go about
testing the functionality in question (given its nature -- integrating with external services).


I've created a ticket to track this -- -- but
don't see an option to upload a patch there. Feedback would be gratefully appreciated.


Many thanks,


-- Charles Duffy
