[linux-elitists] ssh hygiene

Should everyone stop using version 1.5 and previous of the ssh
protocol?

When generating keys for SSH version 2 should you pick RSA or DSA?

Did they ever fix the "rsync over ssh hangs" bug?  I haven't seen
it in a while but once saw it go away and then come back.

Any compelling reason to use Blowfish instead of triple-DES?

If you're going to go somewhere, set up a new account, and log in
from there to your account back home, it makes sense to have the
key fingerprints for your known_hosts on a piece of paper in your
wallet -- right?

I am no good at either shell scripts or TeX, but will inflict this
on those of you who are:
