some time ago I wrote a patch for storing osc credentials in Gnome
keyring instead of ~/.oscrc. It uses keyring only if available
otherwise it falls back to using configuration file.

Any comments on committing this into svn?

The patch is available in bugzilla:

I thought about this patch for some time. Overall the patch looks good to
me but "design wise" I'm a bit hesitant. There might be someone who wants
support for kwallet or another password manager so he adds his kwallet
specific code to the module. So it might be a good idea to add
something like a base class for all these user/password stuff, e.g.
class OscPasswdMgr():
def getUser(...)
def setUser(...)
class OscGnomeKeyring(OscPasswdMgr):

This way we would have a "clean" This might be something for the
future... feel free to commit your patch (at least there are no
objections from my side:) ).

This is not more simply to crypt/decrypt password before read/write
password in ~/.oscrc , like i do in MonoOSC ?

And where do store the crypt/decrypt key ?
Or do you want to ask always the user to enter it ?
