Remove ambiguation

I was searching for OpenSSH the other day and landed on this page, which is a disambiguation on grounds that "OpenSSH is not the only implementation". Well - as far as this wiki is concerned, it is the only relevant implementation. TinySSH, Dropbear etc. have no dedicated wiki articles, and otherwise this page has no content warranting its split from OpenSSH. -- Alad (talk) 20:52, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

+1. It was actually that way before it was moved: Special:Diff/548687. -- Svito (talk) 06:31, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
I disagree, as this page clearly indicate that there are alternatives to OpenSSH. It also encourages to document things that are generic to SSH (security, implementations, relation to other software, alternative usage, ...) that would be discouraged should the only page referencing SSH was OpenSSH.

Well - such "generic" information, as far as it is worthwhile documenting on ArchWiki, can equally be documented in OpenSSH. Especially if the current stub is all we've had in the last months. And if the documention belongs elsewhere, e.g. upstream or on wikipedia, having a seperate SSH article wouldn't change that. -- Alad (talk) 19:51, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
