Build Gear version 0.9.17beta is now available:
This is a feature and bug fix release.
The most important new feature includes improved support for secure
downloading of sources via any protocol that libcurl supports. In
particular, this improvement is introduced to include support for
sftp:// and scp:// type source URLs which make use of SSH keys for
restricted access. This is useful in the case you want Build Gear to
download and build proprietary applications from source which is hosted
on access restricted servers.
Thanks to Jesper Larsen for providing the features and bug fixes for

The location of the public key is set with the keyword ssh_public_key.
The location of the private key is set with the keyword
Defaults are $HOME/.ssh/id_rsa(.pub)
* Get supported protocols from curl
The list of protocols that trigger a remote download is now taken
runtime from libcurl.
* Make tar follow symlinks when adding packages
The default action for tar is to overwrite files and directories
if they exists. This results in symlinks being overritten in cases
where a packages contains i.e. /usr/lib64
Adding --dereference flag makes tar resolve symlinks before extracting
