I keep getting messages about SSH key mismatch for common-lisp.net. It seems that two SSH keys are being negotiated for my client where it isn’t clear which one is chosen:

And indeed <file://common-lisp.net/etc/sshd_config> lists three keys:
I’m not familiar with this practice. What is the purpose of having multiple sshd keys? Shouldn’t we just pick the most secure kind of host key (probably ECDSA)?
