sshd service patch
The sshd service is using ssh-keygen to generate missing SSH keys. If ssh-keygen is missing, it prints the following message:
> /etc/rc.d/sshd: WARNING: /usr/bin/ssh-keygen does not exist.
It makes sense when the key is not generated yet and cannot be created because ssh-keygen is missing.
The problem is that even if the key is present on the host, the sshd service would still warn about missing ssh-keygen (even though it does not need it).
This looks useful for cloud or other minimal environments. However, pregenerating keys has its own challenges such as keeping them unique.
I posted the patch to Phabricator:
