osc suggests python-gnomekeyring, which is long deprecated and going
to be removed from the archive. It should switch to using the GObject
Introspection bindings for gnome-keyring, gir1.2-gnomekeyring-1.0.

This would mean switching to GObject Introspection for other bindings as
well, e.g. GLib and GTK+, so making the switch to GTK+ 3 at the same
time would make a lot of sense.

For more information on GObject Introspection see [1] and [2].

Please try to do this before the Stretch release as we're going to try
to remove it this cycle.

If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.
