Wow, we can do that now?
When I brought up the vastly improved performance from a newer SSH
executable, I was told the only way to get it in would be to build from
"tweak it to include the new OpenSSH binary" is supposed to include the
step to adjust the release.sh script to grab the updated sources and
build the binary.
I attempted to do just this about a month ago though things really
started to snowball. To get openssh to compile you need to update a
bunch of other programs in the msys branch and I just lost interest in
doing so. More info can be found in the msysgit issue "Upgrade SSH" .
However, another option is to take a look at the new mingwGitDevEnv
project , which relies on mingw-get to retrieve binary packages. I
hopefully find soon the time to include OpenSSH 6.1p1 incl. HPN-SSH
Any idea as to when this mingwGitDevEnv project will be mature enough to
use as a replacement for msysgit? One of the reasons I gave up trying to
tweak things to get openssh compiling was that this seemed like a much
better idea. Though if it's fair off I might find time to give it
If someone is keen to try and update openssh in msysgit I'd be willing
to share my hacks from a month ago which could be used as a starting
point. It was left nowhere near ready for a pull request, partially due
to binary issues mentioned above, but at least it'll provide reasonable
ideas to a few of the things that need to happen.
