Subject [PATCH] SSH agent support for Ivy's SSH and SFTP transports
Date Tue, 14 May 2013 15:00:29 GMT
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 --
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVY-1421 -- but don't see an option
to upload a patch there. Feedback would be gratefully appreciated.

Many thanks,

-- Charles Duffy
