Thank you for the next pre-release.

I tested  openssh-SNAP-20180326.tar.gz  and noticed few things that
would be good to fix:

 * regress/ has still some rotten parts of SSHv1 protocol
(proto and $p variable), that would be nice to remove

 * The bug #2335 would be nice to fix finally -- I attached a patch for
rewritten API

 * The bug #2401 was ignored so long that it was finally fixed by some
of the other changes (I closed it).

 * For the sake of completeness, I would like to see fixed also a bug
#2835, which I filled last month. It looks like I am not the only one
who hit that issue.

I ran some of the tests and I see some failures, but I will have to
investigate them further and come back.
