Rebase openssh package for Xenial Xerus to OpenSSH 7.3

Asked by Tronde on 2017-12-18

Is it possible to update or rebase the openssh package in Xenial to at least version 7.3?

Besides the bugfixes in this release I would like to use the ProxyJump option introduced in this version. See [OpenSSH 7.3]( https://www.openssh.com/txt/release-7.3) for further information.

Since Xenial is supported until April 2021 I guess an update of OpenSSH would be nice.

I suggest you report a bug. If the bug and security fixes are significant then the package will be updated sooner rather than later

There is at least one PPA with such version https://launchpad.net/~alindt/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
Maybe that helps (standard disclaimer for PPAs applies of course).

I don't like to use any PPA because I have to keep track if a certain PPA is well maintained and don't cause any trouble during distribution upgrades. Therefore I'm going to open a bug for this and hope fore the best.

Can you help with this problem?
