Do you know if this procedure will get round the problem of SDDM

I'm sorry, what does the 'SDDM' stand for, please? Though GOA is also
using gnome-keyring (libsecret) to store passwords and access tokens
(in case of the OAuth), as far as I know.

Simple Desktop Display Manager. It's the default display manager for
KDE in Fedora 22, replacing KDM. However it does not support gnome
-keyring integration. Luckily KDM is still supported for the moment.

Or maybe I'm misunderstanding what this does.

The GOA allows you to configure (online) accounts in one place, then
applications like evolution-source-registry listens for changes in 
GOA and provides users all what it can from them. There are multiple
applications which can use GOA-configured accounts in a similar way 
as the Evolution does (evolution-source-registry, to be more 
precise). Apart of this, evolution doesn't ask libsecret directly for 
passwords (access tokens), but asks GOA to get them.

I presume GOA still uses gnome-keyring. In that case it doesn't really
fix my problem. Thanks anyway.
