Hi, A while ago Stef Walter (GNOME Keyring) and me (KDE Wallet) started to draft a common D-BUS API for secret information storage. It's meant to make Keyring- and KWallet-like daemons available under a common D-BUS interface and thus increase interoperability between GNOME, KDE and other applications having the need to securely store passwords and other confidential information. We just finished a first rough draft of the specification. For gaining widespread acceptance and use, we'd like to invite everyone interested to join the drafting process which will take place on our mailinglist . This encompasses people working on similar systems/daemons as well as application developers interested in using such an API. The current draft is stored inside GNOME Keyring's git repository  and generated using gtk-doc to generate the API documentation. The current working draft is available inside the freedesktop.org wiki . If there's a need for it we will move the spec to a repository where collaboration will be easier and move the generation to docbook2html. Please note that the current D-BUS interface name is preliminary and not settled upon. It will be decided once the new fd.o specification process has been finalized. To give everyone interested the chance to join the mailinglist beforehand, I'd like to start the discussions on Wednesday, 15th of July. Please forward this mail to members of your communities who might be interested in taking part in the drafting process.
