Bug ID: 2853
           Summary: PROTOCOL document should describe deviation of public
                    key format from RFC spec
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 7.6p1
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Documentation

The SecureShell specification RFC 4716 documents a public key format
for persisting public key files. See

However, the PROTOCOL documentation
does not state how OpenSSH does not use this format.  Instead it
creates public key files i n a format similar to the encoded data
stated in RFC 4253.

I think a small note about the difference would be beneficial.
