I was and I'm aware of the published changes and deprecating SHA1 would imply non-use of
SHA1-based public keys. But public key authentication works fine, for pure ssh and ssh-based
rsync (scp untested). Password authentication doesn't work anymore either for pure ssh, scp
and rsync. I can not find any hints to dramatic changes to that and this authentication scheme
doesn't even work with the standard/vanilla sshd_config for the 14-CURRENT server side.

And beware: this problem is present only in relations, were recent 14-CURRENT is the ssh
