As already mentioned, you could use ssh keys. As my /home is encrypted,
I use my key without a passphrase, but you could use a passphrase and
ssh-agent (if you lock your screen during your absence, nobody will be
able to login to gerolde). Using keys is much more secure than password
authentication anyway.

Additionally, I use ssh master mode:

[thomas at artin ~]$ cat .ssh/config
ControlPath /home/thomas/.ssh/master-%h-%p-%r

Host gerolde
HostName archlinux.org

Host cvs.archlinux.org
HostName archlinux.org

I now launch ssh -M gerolde. That creates a master connection, that all
other ssh connections to the same host are tunneled through (thus the
alias from cvs.archlinux.org to archlinux.org). The authentication
problem remains the same, but as only one connection is established, the
cvs commit and tag operations are done much quicker. I recommend to for
anyone who is working much on arch cvs/git/upload via ssh.
