The output of the ssh command looks fine. You managed to make the test
connection, you were prompted for a passphrase, you managed to put the correct
passphrase (you Entered interactive session) and the output is similar
to the wiki instructions.

You can now
git clone ssh://sandeeps git gnome org/git/gtk+
or any other available package.

The Exit 1 refers to the test command 'ssh -v sandeeps git gnome org'.
When you run this command and it works, you get an interactive shell
which terminates immediately because this test connection 'did not specify
a command'. This is the final proof (the message "ERROR: must specify
a command")
that you managed to enter to and that your account
settings work fine.
