Looking through your code, I found that you only save the last used
SSH password. Every time you connect to another repository (with
another password), it gets overwritten.

I think this is not worth including in TPlink, because there are
already tools out there which save the passwords of SSH sessions which
you can use, and which don't overwrite the password for every new
