(04:25:26 PM) rtyler: kohsuke: so `blimpy ssh` is going to return immediately now?
(04:25:41 PM) kohsuke: yes, it fails if ssh fails
(04:26:09 PM) ***rtyler is a bit confused
(04:26:14 PM) rtyler: this seems like a big UX change then
(04:26:21 PM) ***rtyler should read more carefully
(04:27:13 PM) kohsuke: Yes, modifying a test case made me wonder if there's a better way to do it
(04:28:00 PM) kohsuke: (though in practice you wouldn't see any change as "blimpy provision" does wait for ssh to come online)
(04:28:13 PM) rtyler: but a `blimpy ssh` won't log me into the machine?
(04:28:51 PM) kohsuke: I think just reporting ">> Connecting: SHIPNAME..." if the first attempt fails would be sufficient
(04:29:25 PM) kohsuke: The "gotcha" that made me write that patch is that my first attempt to use blimpy failed miserably at "blimpy ssh"
(04:29:51 PM) kohsuke: because it was trying a wrong user name, and I couldn't Ctrl+C it because of another bug that since then I fixed
(04:30:11 PM) rtyler: with aws and openstack it connects multiple times, usually the machine isn't accepting ssh connections right away
(04:30:14 PM) rtyler: especially on a fresh image
(04:30:25 PM) kohsuke: yes, I understand why you wrote it the way you did the first place
(04:31:17 PM) rtyler: heh
(04:31:21 PM) rtyler: alright
(04:32:05 PM) kohsuke: Let me change it to ">> Connecting: user@SHIPNAME:port" with dots added over time,
(04:32:15 PM) kohsuke: and if it's killed by SIGINT I'll run ssh one last time but without -q
(04:32:22 PM) kohsuke: so you see the error message
(04:32:41 PM) kohsuke: does that sound OK to you?
(04:34:30 PM) rtyler: that does sound good

It turns out some mode of failure includes ssh hanging (such as trying a
wrong port), so silently re-running SSH again wasn't very wise. Instead,
show the command line needed to let the user run the ssh command by
