            Bug ID: 2690
           Summary: Add command line "ssh --version"
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 7.2p2
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: ssh
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org
          Reporter: jg at jguk.org

I am using
ssh -V
OpenSSH_7.2p2 Ubuntu-4ubuntu2.1, OpenSSL 1.0.2g  1 Mar 2016

Would you support a patch to add "ssh --version" this is the standard
way to check the version, it is unclear what version ssh from the help
output, so could add it to that as well. If there was agreement.

$ ssh
usage: ssh [-1246AaCfGgKkMNnqsTtVvXxYy] [-b bind_address] [-c
           [-D [bind_address:]port] [-E log_file] [-e escape_char]
           [-F configfile] [-I pkcs11] [-i identity_file] [-L address]
           [-l login_name] [-m mac_spec] [-O ctl_cmd] [-o option] [-p
           [-Q query_option] [-R address] [-S ctl_path] [-W host:port]
           [-w local_tun[:remote_tun]] [user@]hostname [command]

I would suggest adding the version to this output as well. And also
--version command line on the parameters
