So true, but you just need a pageant (-like) helper to leave this
annoying passphrase thing behind you. I'm running KeePass as secure
password/certificate store with the KeeAgent plugin to serve ssh
certificates. Both commandline git and TortoiseGit are configured using
TortoisePLink (which is the default afaik). Annoyance-Be-Gone!
My git configs contain lines similar to
url = git_at_[hidden]:boostorg/boost.git
pushurl = boost-is-read-only
With all of this in place you get security, ease-of-use, and the most
effective transport mechanism.
