Sorry for the spam, but this has gone on far too long without a response from Atlassian, so I'm tagging some Atlassian accounts I know of in an attempt to get some movement, an ETA, or at least an acknowledgement that this is on your roadmap.
Abhin and Ali - can you please run this up the flagpole to whomever is appropriate to respond? Thank you!
We're working on upgrading our SSH infrastructure. Unfortunately, it's not as trivial as just updating our version of OpenSSH. I don't have a delivery date, but this is on our roadmap. I'll post more specifics here as I get them.
It's great to hear that! Just that comment (after months of silence) means a lot. I think I speak for a lot of people posting here but also reading this issue when I say good intentions in a service provider are a big deal. I'm sure many would also like to point out intentions are still just intentions, as time passes their meaningfulness will erode.
You should hurry up ;) Because many people are not upgrading their keys from dss because OpenSSH stopped to support them in the default configuration. This OpenSSH is now shipped with the latest LTS release of Ubuntu for example...
@benechols Could you reveal more details about the current progress? I guess upgrading OpenSSH and write new codes for the infrastructure is not something that requires more than 3 months. Or are there any blocking SSH bugs? Bitbucket has many better features than Github. ED25519/ECDSA support is the only missing one for me.
We're continuing to make progress on this. As referenced in my previous update, adding support for these additional key types actually has a number of infrastructure dependencies for us, so it's not a trivial upgrade. We're also balancing a number of competing priorities. That said, this is still getting worked on, and I will post more details when I can.
@benechols I appreciate you providing feedback, it makes the future seem promising. As it stands I have only been utilizing Bitbucket as per client demand and recommending that everyone jump ship, I hope that can change soon.
