Comment 1 Hunter Monroe 2003-07-16 16:48:44 EDT
I have two points on this, having spent six hours finding out why automatic 
ssh logins were not accepted (essential for developers using ssh to connect to 
CVS):

1. The lines for HostKeys for rsa and dsa in sshd_config should not be 
commented out as a default.

2. Whatever choice is made on 1, it should be explained in the documentation--
which now refers to the host keys, but does not say they are disabled by 
default.

The comment #1 seems to be a completely separate bug.

This bug is WONTFIX as it doesn't seem to be worth the hassle.
