    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 5.9p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: scp
        AssignedTo: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: calestyo at scientia.net


Not sure whether this has already been discussed previously (because it
seems so basic to me), but at least I haven't found it.

Right now, scp overwrites files (both when copied locally or remotely).

scp, being a conceptual relative to cp, should provide something like
cp's "-i".
