      Description

      Hello,
      I installed Hudson in a debian machine and configured a project with SVN over
      SSH. This worked like a charm and I had my project in less than 5 minutes.
      When I tried to get the same working with CVS + SSH my problems started.

      Apparently hudson is installed as a service in debian, which runs with the
      hudson user. I tried to configure the .ssh folder in this user's home directory
      and add the required keys there to fetch the source from CVS. This got me a bit
      further but then the keys needed to be unlocked. I thought of using ssh-agent to
      unlock it, but I had no information on the hudson's user password (if there is one).

      At this point I quit this approach killed the process and started it with the
      following command line under my user account:
      java -jar /usr/share/hudson/hudson.war

      With my user account as owner of the process the ssh keys are available and
      everything works fine.

      I suppose there is a better way of doing this but I could not find it. Maybe a
      similar approach as we have already for SVN over ssh would be ideal.

      Thx and best regards,
      Luciana Moreira
