Bug Description

The package python-nova should include openssh-client as a dependency as it includes a call to the ssh-keygen binary. Specifically, the file /usr/share/pyshared/nova/ includes a shell out to this binary.

= Testing =

$ grep -n "ssh-keygen" /usr/share/pyshared/nova/
122: (out, err) = utils.execute('ssh-keygen', '-q', '-l', '-f', public_key_file)
143: utils.execute('ssh-keygen', '-q', '-b', bits, '-N', '',

$ apt-cache show python-nova | grep -E 'Depends|Suggests' | grep -c ssh
