I'll add both openssh client and openssh-server .install files to
maemo/downloads as soon as I have approval for openssh garage project.
Waiting for 2 days already :(
As for now it's pretty simple - add mistral/extras(770) or
bora/extras(N800) to AM repository list and you will be able to install
both client and server using AM. No xterm/becomeroot and other black
magic is needed anymore :)
