            Bug ID: 2709
           Summary: Permission Error logged at Debug
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 7.2p2
          Hardware: 68k
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: sshd
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org
          Reporter: clay.gerrard at gmail.com

Took me an extra few minutes to get my aws instance setup because the
error message I needed was logged at DEBUG instead instead of >INFO


The users authorized_keys file was 700 and had the right key - but
owned by root :P

The client show'd it was trying the right private key, sshd in auth.log
just said:

Apr 14 19:02:49 ip-172-30-0-16 sshd[1638]: Connection closed by port 59865 [preauth]

When I bumped the log level and restarted sshd it was obvious:

Apr 14 19:24:37 ip-172-30-0-16 sshd[2756]: debug1: Could not open
authorized keys '/home/clayg/.ssh/authorized_keys': Permission denied


Not complaining!  Very glad the log message was there at debug!
