I tried, several times, from directions on two separate pages, to 
install the ssh server from repository.maemo.org mistral free and it 
wasn't there.  The client was there, but not the server (and the 
description in the App Manager specifically said it was the client).

What are the "rules" for membership and wiki editing?  If I create an 
account can I just add this info myself to the repositories list?  I 
figure stating that openssh client and server are in the extras/free 
would have made the difference for me and I would never have had to 
post this question.
