Hi folks, I see that the Homebrew version of OpenSSH does not support the macOS keychain currently, but that it once did via
I also see in the formula a comment:
# Please don't resubmit the keychain patch option. It will never be accepted. # https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-dupes/pull/482#issuecomment-118994372
However, that link is broken, and I can’t find it saved in e.g. the Wayback Machine, so I don’t know what the reasoning was for removing that option. Since it’s old enough that the documentation is gone, I’m hoping that it might be worth re-opening the discussion Does anyone here remember why we don’t have keychain support in homebrew OpenSSH? Is there any hope of getting it back again?
Alternately, does anyone know how to add keychain support to the Homebrew OpenSSH manually? I’ve been looking at an old tutorial to manually fix it, but it’s outdated enough that I’m afraid to try it.
