Re: Added Gnome keyring Support


As you requested, I have attached a patch. I am very new to python. I
am still getting used to it's object model. It does everything

Currently I have trying to figure just how to add a custom widget to
the glade widget palette. It would be easier to add the key ring input
widget, to a dialog if it was in the glade palette. The documentation
on how to added widget to glade-2 is lacking thought..

I am all for adding my keyring code to the existing settings model. I
am still trying to grok python. Or I would have tried to do that
myself. It looks like the keyring can simplify coding dataproviders, I
hear that the new firefox is using the keyring. If so we should
encourage using those entries in the keyring.

Latter tomorrow I will be starting on the RTM code..
