Sprint:Alert Production F16 - 10
The instructions for using public-key authentication with lsst-dev assume the user has OpenSSH. While this does not prevent users from translating the instructions to their own SSH software, it does cause a confusing bug if the user isn't aware that OpenSSH (or, specifically, the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file) only accepts one-line keys and not the more common multi-line PEM format.
I propose that a note be added to the end of "1. Generate a key pair" warning non-OpenSSH users to make sure their public key is in the one-line format.

Added to F16 - 10. Should properly be in F16 - 9, but caught the mistake too late.

I'd like a quick review of this change. It puts the original text in a more platform-independent context, but doesn't alter it otherwise.
