Svn SSH Setup
If you have a different username than on svn.gna.org
To get around this problem, you can setup per host SSH settings. To do this, open ~/.ssh/config and at the end add the lines
Host svn.gna.org User aeruder
This makes it so that everytime I connect to svn.gna.org with SSH, it will automatically use the username aeruder instead of my unix username.
If you are prompted for a private key password
This will look something like:
Enter passphrase for key '/home/andy/.ssh/id_dsa':
To get around this you can either setup ssh-agent to cache this password or you can simply turn off the password on your private key. To do the latter, simply type:
ssh-keygen -t dsa -p
and follow the prompts, and when it prompts for a new passphrase, simply hit enter.
