      Description

      There are a couple of flags that would be convenient to set in evergreen host ssh when connecting to developer workstations, that currently require the raw ssh command to use.

      • -A is required for SSH agent forwarding, which allows developers to keep their SSH keys off their virtual workstations, while still being able to pull from protected Github repositories.
      • -X is required for X11 forwarding, which allows developers to run programs which need to raise graphical prompts.
