Description of problem:

Ssh needs a system-config-ssh tool. This would be very useful for many system admins to be able to configure sshd.conf with a gui and tui. So the following could be configured:

PermitRootLogin, PasswordAuthentication, ChrootDirectory, X11Forwarding

Match Group ftponly
        ChrootDirectory %h
        X11Forwarding no
        AllowTcpForwarding no
        ForceCommand internal-sftp

Currently it can be complicated to configure sftp to chroot to a users home directory and not a subdirectory inside a use home directory. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

All the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to set up chroot for sshd/sftp
Actual results:
Have to download newest sshd and patch it then edit sshd.conf.

Expected results:
start system-config-ssh and choose chroot user to home directory by group.

This is not part of openssh. If you really need it, reopen it against system config tool.
