GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 755567
Store password in my keychain with Seahorse
Last modified: 2015-09-24 21:42:07 UTC
When I register my nickname with NickServ, how am I supposed to remember the password?
Save it to my keychain in GNOME Seahorse!
Authenticate to NickServ using my password from GNOME Seahorse!
Thanks for taking the time to report this.

Note this is not just basic NickServ identification support.
This especially refers to NickServ authentication using tight integration with GNOME by means of using the keychain in GNOME Seahorse.

OK, let me clarify then:
When we get support for NickServ authentification then yes, the credentials should be stored in the keyring via libsecret. But first we need to figure out how to best add that support without throwing crazy options at the user ;-)
Yeah, I wanted to clarify that since NickServ authentication could be implemented without the use of keyring.
So depending on the implementation (which may be a gradual implementation in multiple steps with an initial partial implementation) this may not be a duplicate since it covers a specific implementation.
