Description Moo 2015-09-24 19:24:05 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!

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.

> Note this is not just basic NickServ identification support.

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 ;-)
Comment 4 Moo 2015-09-24 21:42:07 UTC
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.
