Default OpenSSH ECDSA support

I've tried to search bugzilla and forums for information on ECDSA support
in the Fedora provided OpenSSH packages, but didn't find anything conclusive.

What is the status?

It looks like it is not enabled.

$ ssh-keygen -t ecdsa
unknown key type ecdsa

I'd recommend filing a bug report requesting support if you need it.

Elliptic curve cryptography support has been excluded from Fedora [1],
presumably due to patent concerns [2].

I can't find the link but remember that there was talk about about reversing
that decision after some investigation was finished.

If Fedora doesn't plan to ship it with ECDSA enabled, what's the purpose
of the Fedora ECC/TLS Test Server found here: https://ecc.fedora.redhat.com/

Try asking the legal list:

I don't think Fedora's legal eagles monitor this one.
