Would you like SSH turned on for your Team Services account?

[Update 5/29/2016] We will be turning on SSH for all existing accounts once we finish deploying sprint 100 (hopefully by the end of this week).

We are beginning to roll out SSH for Team Services accounts. If you would like SSH enabled for your account, please email me your account URL.

We still need to implement support for brand new accounts (new accounts won’t work with SSH until DNS entries propagate, and we’re working on a solution to eliminate that delay), but it’s otherwise complete.

We also have documentation for configuring SSH available.

          I’ve enabled it for that account. Let me know if you have any issues.

    Keep getting this error below. It is authenticating fine, but it keeps failing (RANDOMLY) to clone. Randomly because 90% of the time it fails, but sometimes it does work after repeated attempts.

    Via HTTPS, it works fine.
