Version: 0.156.0-1
Severity: important

The libgnome-keyring library is deprecated and its usage is strongly
discouraged [1].

Your package osc recommends or suggests python-gnomekeyring.

osc should switch to using the GObject Introspection bindings for
libsecret, gir1.2-secret-1. [2]

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.
Such a port should ideally happen with upstream being involved.

For more information on GObject Introspection see [3] and [4].
