            Bug ID: 3341
           Summary: Allow for TERM overriding with SetEnv directive
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 7.9p1
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: ssh
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org
          Reporter: gabriel.homa at pm.me

With the ever increasing amount of available terminal emulators I'd
like to request an enhancement to SSH that would allow for $TERM to be
overwritten by the SetEnv directive. 

This would allow for configurations such as:

Host *.debian10.org
        SetEnv TERM=xterm-256color

Host *.fedora34.org
        SetEnv TERM=alacritty

Making the lives of users managing older systems happier :)

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,
