Easier than ssh-agent is to create an "authorized_keys" file. Log onto the
shell box and type "mkdir .ssh". Next, copy the .ssh/identity.pub file from
your local machine to .ssh/authorized_keys on shell.sourceforge.net.

From then on, SF will used the auth'd key rather than asking for your

In the Account Maintenance pages on SF, there is a box for entering keys. I
haven't tried it yet (I entered my key, but had to wait for the cron job and
never went back to check). That should allow you to do CVS work without
entering a password either. It might also update the authorized_keys file on
the shell machine, too (i.e. obviate the step above)
