           Summary: ssh-add trips up due to missing key types
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.1p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P4
         Component: ssh-add
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: wknox at mitre.org

ssh-add will now return a non-zero status when adding keys, due solely to the
fact that one or more key types was never created. I propose that if a key file
just doesn't exist, that is an intentional act that should not result in a
non-zero exit (this is of any concern to me because I have scripts for our users
that depend on a zero exit of ssh-add when they run it in order to continue, and
I can't tell what other people may have done which will break, and I just think
backwards compatibilty is a good thing when it is easy). I have a patch which I
will attach.
