This evening I committed a patch to make Gnome.Keyring, the managed
Gnome keyring client implementation written by Gonzalo, installable to
The patch is based on what's already packaged by OpenSUSE, who have been
pushing the envelope to make this library fully installable. The Debian
guys were not comfortable applying such a patch, so they've waited
patiently for us to provide an official installable release.
This is the last chance to make API-breaking changes or even obsoletions
before we stabilize and make the release, so application authors and
packagers should speak up as soon as possible if they are uncomfortable
with any aspect of the library. At this stage, only critical changes
will realistically be accepted.
We have been cautious with Gnome.Keyring because it contains
security-related code, and I would have been happier if we could have
done a full audit and feature comparison with the unmanaged Gnome
keyring client library, but at this point it works, is tried and tested
so we might as well go ahead and make the release.
