This series has already covered a few basics about ~/.ssh/config in terms of how to simplify the usage of ssh tunnelling. In order to round this up a bit more, I will add some information you should be aware of about ~/.ssh/config. This is only intended to be a quick reminder about how it is

When you issue git tag it will show you all tags of a repository sorted in alphabetical order. But actually it makes much more sense to see tags sorted by tagging date. Unfortunately there is currently no such git sub command that accomplishes this easily. So we are going to write our own: Article series
