I have just uploaded net-ssh 0.1.0 to the preliminary Ruby Production
Archive (RPA) repository (http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=265):

Installation/upgrade is achieved with

$ rpa install net-ssh

and happens atomically, as usual.

=== More information on RPA and rpa-base at
    http://rpa-base.rubyforge.org


$ rpa query -x net-ssh
Matching available ports:
name: net-ssh
version: 0.1.0-1
classification: Top.Library.Development
requires:
description: A pure Ruby module that emulates an SSH client.

This is an experimental release of Net::SSH. It absolutely WILL NOT work
with the version of Ruby's openssl module currently shipped with Ruby
versions < 1.8.2. You must get a patched version of the openssl module
and in stall it (and remove the old module) before using Net::SSH.

The current release of Net::SSH supports:
* the execution of non-interactive processes on the remote host
* a subset of SFTP (list files, get and put files)
* port forwarding, both from a local port to a remote port, and vice versa.
* a command-line key generation utility, called rb-keygen, similar to ssh-keygen
