Re: [HTCondor-users] Problems with condor_ssh_to_job


looking at the ticket:
it's unclear to me what the current status is - is this in the pipeline for the next packaged version,
and will it also be backported to current stable versions (since this should affect all released packages)? 

Many thanks for your support,
