Hi Kelvin,

that page is really just information for Windows folks wanting to connect to people.apache.org
and I dont think is a suitable place to talk about Maven.

Secondly, your assumption that Maven doesnt recognise .ppk files is incorrect. All you need
do is add a reference to it in your settings.xml
See http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-deploy-plugin/examples/deploy-ssh-external.html

> The instructions at [1] for creating keys for authentication using putty for use with
signing into people.apache.org describe saving the private key as a .ppk file.  If a user
then makes the assumption that this file is suitable for referencing in a maven settings.xml
file they will get failures during maven deploy commands because the putty file format is
not recognised by maven. The instructions should perhaps contain, after point 7, 
> 8. from the conversions menu in puttygen, save the private key in open ssh format for
use with maven.This file format is required by maven's privateKey element to allow automatic
authentication when using commands such as "mvn deploy"
