Hi Daniel,

Excuse me for this delayed reply but I was not reachable for one week and had no access to Internet.

I agree to provide some help on examples or other parts of libssh2 as well. However, I have currently very little time to spend on such activity so I can't tell you exactly when a particular patch of mine is going to be available.
I believe samples need some cleanup to be really useful and I also would like to fix properly the code I wrote for building the public key from the private key file for use in userauth_hostbased_fromfile and userauth_publickey_fromfile functions.

Since I'm not very familiar with libssh2 code yet, I would prefer at first to send you my patches for approval rather than committing then directly in the CVS.

Is it okay for you?

I agree completely with you on this.

Are you interested in writing up some patches for this, or possibly even get
commit access to the CVS repo to continue your cleanups without having to go
through anyone else?
