Hello people,

I've spent the past 14 years or so working on a series of patches for 
OpenSSH to improve throughput in high performance environments. This 
originally started as a way to deal with windowing issues on long fat 
networks for the transfer of bulk data. If you aren't familiar with this 
work you can find more information at

I've recently received a grant from the National Science Foundation to 
incorporate new advances into HPN-SSH (NSF Award#: 2004012). The end 
goal being to meet the needs of researchers, users, institutions, and 
other organizations with high performance data transfer needs.

As part of this project I've been soliciting input from users and 
stakeholders to help guide the direction of development over the next 
two years. More information about the project and our goals can be found 
at https://www.psc.edu/hpn-ssh/community-guide. We've also developed an 
anonymous short survey on Google Forms at

If you have the time and inclination to give me your input on the 
development of HPN-SSH I would appreciate it.

Thank you all for your time and the constant work that goes into 
developing OpenSSH.
