           Summary: ssh_config missing default configuration values for
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.9p1
          Platform: All

            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement

#GSSAPIAuthentication no
#GSSAPIDelegateCredentials no

been maintained, and these informative default values do not appear for many
other configurable parameters.  Although my primary interest is GSSAPI, anyone
spending time to fix this issue should add all missing configurable tags to
