Import Github User Public SSH Keys

You can use this command to add keys to the current user authorized_keys file. This command works for public keyservers, but in my case, I used it for Github. Handy when setting up a new machine or adding a new user's keys to a system.

# Example - ssh-import-id gh:GITHUB_USERNAME

ssh-import-id gh:avogel3

If the PROTOCOL (gh above) portion is absent, it defaults to lp. Acceptable values are lp = launchpad and gh = github. You can also configure this command to handle a specific URL when not specifying a protocol.
