ssh agent forwarding ?

Good day -

I was wondering whether libssh2 can or will support forwarding of the
SSH agent connection
to a remote host, so that if I do 'ssh-add -l' on the remote host over
a libssh2 connection
it will display the list of my local identities which are then
available to use for further
ssh connections from that remote host .

Googling turned up this thread from @ 2012-03 :
 '[PATCH] Request SSH agent forwarding'
from Mitchell Hashimoto <>
but this patch does not seem to have been integrated into the latest
libssh2-1.5.0 release
I am using .

Are there any plans to implement or any current implementation of
agent forwarding
for libssh2 in any GIT branch ?

If not I'll have to use libssh, which appears to support agent
forwarding, but I'd rather not have to.

Thanks & Regards,
