These all start with ssh-agency-:

  • bin-dir (where are my ssh commands)
  • add-executable (ssh-add command)
  • agent-executable (ssh-agent command)
  • env-file (write SSH agent environment variables so that other processes can find it)
  • private-key-p (why?)
  • keys (a regex of key files to add)


Again, these start with ssh-agency-:

  • add-keys
  • start-agent (also write some environment variables to help us find it)
  • find-agent
  • status
  • ensure (start and add keys if needed)

Starting it

The autoload mechanism hooks ensure into all the magit functions.

But how do I include the package?
