Actually, osc should not touch or change anything in the home directory, if

Hmm yes we could implement this easily.

Another thing I noticed is that it manipulates the user credentials, removes
password entries and such without asking the user, which is really a bad
behaviour IMO, such changes should be confirmed or done by the user.

This shouldn't be the case with osc from git master anymore.

What is wrong with having a system level oscrc file? For example in
/etc/oscrc? This is not less secure, since the the permissions of the file
/etc can be set to prevent other's from reading it.

There's no need for a "system level" oscrc, just tell osc which
configfile it should use: "osc --config /path/to/file" or set
the "OSC_CONFIG" environment variable.


Using environment variable for something like that really makes things harder
than they should be, especially if we are not using the command line but osc as
a module. We should be able to override the configuration when initialising osc
in some other python program for example. That should work fine if we do not
try to change the permissions mentioned above I guess..
