Normally we recommend setting up a public/private key-pair without
a pass-phrase on the private key (setting a pass-phrase on the
private key is effectively storing it encrypted, which is a good
idea if you have to store the key on a server where others might be
able to read it, but for your local machine, it’s hardly worth it).
Anyway, the ssh-askpass I assume is the default program used by ssh
to query you for the pass-phrase, if you run ‘man ssh’ you’ll find
SSH_ASKPASS If ssh needs a passphrase, it will read the
I have no experience with actually setting this up
though, but it
sounds like it shouldn’t be that difficult. Let us know if you
figure something out or would like some further pointers.
If simple, we should probably set this up in the Subversion bundle.
Presently I have no private keys with pass-phrase, but I might play
with it later.
Old thread, I know... I'm lagging behind.
A few years ago I had to access a remote CVS repository that required
SSH tunneling and then learned about http://www.sshkeychain.org/
which stores your ssh passphrases in the keychain, it might solve the
I don't know if it solves the problem, and I stopped using that
program 2-3 years ago, so all disclaimers apply.
