Slow git gerrit-push

I’ve been annoyed by the very slow process of submitting changes to ITK since the beginning of the year. Each git gerrit-push took approximately 10 minutes to run.

That would have annoyed me a lot more a few years when I was doing it several times a day, but now that it is only a hobby, I just let it run while actually working.

But now in the train, with the internet access failing every minute or so, this is quite annoying. So I finally took a few minutes to search on my favorite search engine, and discovered that a simple

GSSAPIAuthentication no

in my ~/.ssh/config fixed the problem. git gerrit-push now runs in just a few seconds. And this is in the train, not with a fast connection.

I should have looked at it a lot earlier!
