Please package pinentry with libsecret and gnome3 support,
to re-enable saving GnuPG passphrases in gnome-keyring
which isn't working since the update to GnuPG 2.1.

Sorry but doing this would introduce libsecret as a hard dependency for *all* pinentry applications, not just pinentry-gnome3:

pinentry E: Dependency libsecret detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/bin/pinentry-tty', 'usr/bin/pinentry-gtk-2', 'usr/bin/pinentry-curses', 'usr/bin/pinentry-qt'])

I am not prepared to support libsecret in [core] at this stage.

Can we look at this again, please? libsecret isn't that big, and its dependencies glib2 and libgcrypt have over 99.8% penetration (libsecret itself is at 87.94%). I would move it to [core].

Alright. Does pinentry-0.9.7-3 from [staging] work for you? If it does, please mose libsecret to [core]. Cheers.

Seems to work fine. pinentry-curses, -gtk-2, -gnome3 and -qt all work and use the password from gnome-keyring if it's in there. Only -gtk-2 and -gnome3 actually give the option of saving it.

libsecret moved to [core]; thank you.
