Hi all,

I know that it is quite late in F22 schedule and freeze is coming, but 
we decided to push recent upstream version into F22 before beta freeze 
to keep up with upstream.
I spent some time with testing various use cases with our downstream 
patches and I would like to point out that I did my best. It works fine 
from my point of view. Despite of that I would like to ask you, if you 
could also try your use cases and playing around with ssh* tools and if 
something would break, please report back to me.

Update and builds:

The only potential incompatible change is UseDNS default in sshd_config. 
You can find here new features like "Experimental host key rotation" and 
many bug fixes.

List of complete upstream changes can be found here:

Best regards,
Jakub Jelen
