 Replying to [comment:17 pva]:
 > There are reports that patch from opensuse works fine (see attached
 patch in our bug). This means that some distributions already include such
 support, but what about upstream? Are there any chances for this to happen
 in near future?

 The patch from openSUSE actually does have a few particularly annoying
 bugs, such as losing saved passwords.  We already have some keyring
 support in a branch developed by one of our Summer of Code students, and
 while we ''could'' integrate it prior to 3.0.0, it's going to be better
 for everyone, distributions included, if we wait for 3.0.0 to do so.  That
 said, currently, I'm aiming for 2.7.x to be the last of the 2.x.y series,
 providing bug and security fixes while we work on integrating a lot of our
 previous Summer of Code work and removing deprecated API for 3.0.0.  If
 all goes according to my plan and desires, we could have a 3.0.0 by year
 end (but don't even think about holding me to that--my plans often fail
 around here!).
