Please describe the problem.
The OpenSSH client parses configuration in a "first match wins" manner, and this also applies to
IgnoreUnknown. This means that when git-annex's
Include ~/.ssh/config is processed, any user-specified
IgnoreUnknown setting in the global configuration will be ignored because it has already been set. As a result, every time git-annex runs ssh, it immediately exits with an error:
drop vol3 somefile.mkv (locking vol5...) (lockcontent failed) (checking vol5...) /home/grawity/.ssh/config: line 217: Bad configuration option: gssapikeyexchange /home/grawity/.ssh/config: terminating, 1 bad configuration options failed
To be fair, this might be an OpenSSH bug (IgnoreUnknown ought to be merged), but it seems git-annex is triggering it unnecessarily.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
~/.ssh/config, have some unrecognized options (e.g.
GSSAPIKeyExchange) and a corresponding
Try to use a git-annex feature which directly invokes ssh, e.g. get or drop.
What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?
6.20161210 on Arch, but I think this was introduced in a 201611* release.
Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)
Yes, it's been taking care of my archives for nearly a year.
