Gajim supports some keyring software , mostly on gnome plateform. Recently it support kwalletcli for kde but the support of kde4 is quite not defined...

Enhancement recommendation

Gajim should use an library to do the keyring management. This way, it can rely on several different backend...

I think that keyring is a good one...

it's small and very easy to use...

This way we could simplify the code of password management and support other plateforms like kde or even windows (i've not really tested)...

Are you able to make it work? I tried with gnome keyring without success, and I don't see any API doc.

I've try the demo and a quick adaptation with kdewallet and it works..

i'll try to investigate a little more :)
