Sentence reads "OpenSSh also implements a nonstandard MAC algorithm, hmac- ripemd160@openssh.com." Should this not be "... @openssh.org."?

second bullet, top of page

EnableSSHKeysign yes must be in the _client_ configuration (not in the server's).

Note from the Author or Editor:
This might already have been fixed. As the reporter says, change "server configuration" to "client configuration", so the second bullet reads: * EnableSSHKeysign yes must be in the client configuration.
