Bug#166700: ssh2: Debian ssh2 is too old. Should be upgraded or removed.

Package: ssh2
Version: 2.0.13-7
Severity: important
Tags: security

Debian's version of SSH's ssh (called the "ssh2" package for some reason) is
version 2.0.13-7.  Upstream is at version 3.2.0.

This is no good. 2.0.13-7 is really buggy, and numerous security flaws have
been fixed since it came out. It's detrimental to include this package in
Debian, with its current state. It should either be upgraded to the latest
upstream, or removed entirely.
