some time ago I wrote a patch for storing osc credentials in Gnome

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:) ).

Do you avoid dependencies to Gnome/KDE via that as well ?
(osc should still work on a minimal installation).

What I had in mind was that osc doesn't care from where and how the credentials
are retrieved. You simply add something like "credentials = 'gnome_keyring'" to
your ~/.oscrc (for each apiurl section) and osc will try to create an instance
of the class 'gnome_keyring' and then retrieve the credentials...
These classes can be packaged as plugins for osc etc. so we don't have new
