            Bug ID: 2879
           Summary: ssh-keygen missing documentation for "-Z" flag
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 7.7p1
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: Documentation
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org
          Reporter: scott_fields at me.com

ssh-keygen has supported the -Z flag since 1.237 of ssh-keygen.c.

However, and man page has never been updated to include the specifics
of the operation of this flag.

Please update the man page for ssh-keygen to include the specifics for
the "-Z" option, which allows you to specify the encryption cipher for
a private key. Based on the code, this option only applies if you are
using the new private key format, either currently used if you specify
the -o flag when creating/updating a key, or specify ED25519 for the
key type.
