[PATCH] store passwords in the KDE Wallet
I’ve written a CLI access tool to the KDE Wallet (tested with KDE 3 at the moment only, sorry), mostly for replacing ssh-askpass and pinentry, but also for making things like gajim and pidgin adhere to our boss’ policy that passwords must not be stored on the disc in plain text, but may be stored in the KWallet. (gnome-keyring is not an option on a KDE centric system – too many things doing the same thing.)
Here’s a patch adding support for kwalletcli in gajim (tested, with two accounts, one with password stored one not, migration is also working). gnome-keyring is still preferred if it exists, so there won’t be any change in pre-existing behaviour.
Note that kwalletcli is still beta (although I plan to release an 1.00 version by the end of the month; maybe someone who has KDE 4 could join the fun and test it), and as such, there is no homepage or anything yet, just this one:
$ dget https://eurynome.mirbsd.org/debs/dists/hardy/wtf/pkgs/kwalletcli/kwalletcli_0.91-1.dsc
Please apply the patch, it’s against hg from today. My employer is known for releasing stuff under the GPL, and as such I’m allowed to contribute.
