Hello,

Thanks for fixing the -A (agent forwarding) issue on 5.2.

Anyway, I would appreciate very much if the openssh release archives were named according to some scheme.

For now it is most confusing and releases cannot be told apart:

current is openssh-4.3p2_r2_52.tar.Z
last was openssh-4.3p2-52-r2.tar.Z

I see that the "4.3p2" part comes with the source but something like, say, adding 1 to the r-Part with every new Release would be extremely helpful. Likewise, adding 1 to the Fileset Level would allow the user to identify, which release he has got installed:

Fileset Level State Type Description (Uninstaller)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
openssh.base.client 4.3.0.5201 C F Open Secure Shell Commands
openssh.base.server 4.3.0.5201 C F Open Secure Shell Server
openssh.license 4.3.0.5201 C F Open Secure Shell License
openssh.man.en_US 4.3.0.5201 C F Open Secure Shell
Documentation - U.S. English
openssh.msg.en_US 4.3.0.5201 C F Open Secure Shell Messages -
U.S. English

Thanks and Best Regards,
