Re: [yast-devel] Disturbing branches at GitHub (broken/...)
Dne 3.9.2012 16:12, Lukas Ocilka napsal(a):
Here's a possible way how to delete all the "broken" branches

* Backup your SSH keys (~/.ssh)
* Create a new SSH key without passphrase (ssh-keygen)
* Add this *.pub key to
Now you can clone/push/fetch without entering the key

Um, why do we need the new key? Just to avoid entering the key passphrase at

You can easily use ssh-agent for this, it is started automatically in KDE
(probably also in other desktops, not tested).

Just run "ssh-add" and enter the passphrase. Then you can use the key without entering the passphare (works with all commands like ssh, scp, git... which use the key).

If you want to lock the key again (for security reasons, e.g. when leaving the
computer) just call "ssh-add -D" and then you will be asked for the passphrase

(See man ssh-agent, man ssh-add for details.)
