parentprofiles/arch/riscv: remove outdated net-libs/libssh2[mbedtls] mask (diff)
virtual/secret-service: initial import
A virtual for providers of the Secret Service API, ultimately to supersede directly depending on gnome-base/gnome-keyring - there is now at least one more functional provider in the tree (app-admin/keepassxc - tested by me using secret-tool, seahorse and of course applications actually using this API for secrets, no problems), and work is ongoing on implementing this in KDE. Nb. gnome-keyring is currently listed as preferred because in addition to having been THE SS API provider until quite recently, keepassxc is currently somewhat more complicated to use - one must prepare keyring or keyrings in advance for use with SS, no PAM module for unlocking a keyring on login, no command-line option to enable SS support etc. Signed-off-by: Marek Szuba <>
