I'm look into using keyring as a way to (optionally) remove clear text
passwords from the various config files. (See
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/oslo/+spec/pw-keyrings for details.)
One of the comments I got back is that I should have the oslo build
dependency on keyring be optional until a consensus is reached that it's
okay to add it. I see that keystoneclient is already doing an "import
keyring" and catching the exception if it's not there. I can certainly
do something similar, but it seems like it would simplify things if we
did just have keyring as a regular hard dependency. You don't have to
use it, but it's there if you want it.
So, is this the proper forum to bring this up?
And if so, can we start the ball rolling to get a decision on getting
that dependency approved?
