Which tool did you finally use to create the SSH key, and where do you run it?
Joerg, from what you're saying below, this is what we use for our apache.org email address only, correct?
I'm not sure what you mean here.
Yes. What is this SSH key for--Do we use ssh keygen directly on cvs.apache.org to generate the DSA/RSA key you're mentioning? The newbie pages do not seem to give any instruction on this.
Hmm, someone should write it up in the wiki. The key is generated on the local machine. The private key is stored in a location determined by the ssh client you use. In order to get the public key onto the target machine, log in, create the ~/.ssh directory, then scp the public key to the appropriate file. Private keys on remote machines not under your control are a no-no.
