  1. [PATCH] contrib/cygwin/ssh-{host,user}-config

    Hi,

    attached a total revamp of the ssh-host-config and ssh-user-config
    scripts. The underlying idea is that one of our maintainers has
    contributed a unified configuration script environment for Cygwin,
    called csih. This is now used by the below ssh config scripts as well.
    There's also an additional file called sshd-inetd, which is a service
    configuration file for inetutils. The Makefile had to be changed
    accordingly.

    Could somebody please check this in?

    And, is is possible to get this change into 5.1p1?


    Thanks,
    Corinna

    Does this require a specific version of the cygwin tools or DLL? If so
    we may want to document it, or explicitly test for it in configure.ac.

    What do you think?

    It does not require a specific version of the Cygwin DLL and it does not
    require any more tools than before, except for the addition dependency
    of the csih package. However, the csih package is now part of the Cygwin
    distro base install. Additionally, csih will be added to the OpenSSH
    package dependencies in the Cygwin distro. From the user perspective,
    the change is rather gentle.

    The big advantage of this new solution is that most of the really sticky
    Windows stuff is now externalized into the csih packages. This doesn't
    only positively affect OpenSSH but evey other package which requires
    Windows-specific configuration (creating a Windows user account with
    special privileges, installing as a Windows service, etc.)
    If changes are necessary, they will in future not so much affect the
    OpenSSH package, but rather the csih package (apart from potential
    script bugs, of course).

    I don't see any need to document something or to do additional tests in
    configure.

    Oh, btw., here's a somewhat off-topic question: The next major release
    of Cygwin will drop Windows 95/98/Me support, it won't even run on 9x
    anymore. Shall we rip out 9x support from the cygwin-specific code in
    OpenSSH as well, as soon as Cygwin 1.7 is officially released (hopefully
    this year)?
