I've sent this patch to Sara 2 months ago, but she seems to be too busy to commit it, even though she said the patch looked fine to her.

The patch itself was written by my colleague, Dmitry Novikov.

I modified the patch to support PuTTY's Pageant on Windows. It's almost standard there, so it should be supported. At least I don't know about any better ssh agent for Windows, so why not support this one, it's better than nothing. :)

I tried not to break the original non-Windows parts, but I didn't test it elsewhere. The only intentional change is when signature length is detected, because it didn't work and I believe it was not correct.

  • Resolution set to outdated
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Type set to enhancement

Closing this as ssh agent support was added, but independently of this patch.
