To do any real work, gnome-keyring requires libgnome-keyring to be installed. Without it, it fails to work with many applications.

At the moment, it shows as 'optional' - however it really should be required.
This task depends upon

From what I can see, libgnome-keyring optionally requires gnome-keyring, not the other way around.

Libgnome-keyring is deprecated and has been replaced by libsecret. It's the application that uses a library to access the keyring, not the other way around.
