            Bug ID: 3514
           Summary: The help document of ssh-agent misses an option
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 9.1p1
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: security
          Priority: P5
         Component: ssh-agent
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org

The "-h" option of ssh-agent misses the option "O". 

1) For the option "O", the following code appears during option parsing
and modifies the restrict_websafe in ssh-agent.c:2055-2059 for version

                        if (strcmp(optarg, "no-restrict-websafe") == 0)
                                restrict_websafe  = 0;
                                fatal("Unknown -O option");

But it does not appear in the document provided by "-h".

It may prevent users from using the relevant function.
