Comment #1 on issue 1991 by chip...@gmail.com: Using an external ssh or
cvs/svn commands + kerberized access
This is a bit tricky. So, there are two parts that deal with SSH: The
repository verification (check_repository), which uses Paramiko, and as of
RB 1.5.2, the rbssh script, which is a substitute for ssh that allows us to
work around limitations in ssh for customizable, per-site .ssh directories.
The first part must use paramiko. We don't have any other API for the
repository verification. Of course, in your case, you don't even really
want that verification, and I wouldn't be totally opposed to support for
The second part, rbssh, also uses paramiko. So assuming the first is
solved, what you want for the second is a way to say "Use the system ssh
instead of rbssh," which I think is also a reasonable option to add, though
we'll have to be very explicit on the limitations.
Another alternative for rbssh is to replace the system rbssh with a symlink
to ssh. It will of course be overridden every time you upgrade, but that
would solve that part.
The CVS thing is really a separate problem and I want to keep this ticket
limited to Kerberos/system SSH support. That said, I'll reopen the ticket.
