Spent the day testing the sshpasswd branch. A few interesting things:

  • I was able to get rid of 10 lines of Windows specific code for rsync.net, which had been necessary for console ssh password prompting to work. Yay!
  • git-remote-gcrypt turned out to be broken when there is no controlling tty. --no-tty has to be passed to gpg to avoid it falling over in this case, even when a gpg agent is available to be used. I fixed this with a new release of git-remote-gcrypt.

Mostly the new branch just worked! And is merged...

Merged a patch from Robie Basak that adds a new special remote that's sort of like bup but supports deletion: ddar

Backlog: 172
