The Python keyring library provides an easy way to access the system keyring
service from Python. It can be used in any application that needs safe
password storage.
Keyrings.alt module contains the alternate keyring backend implementations
for use with python-keyring, most importantly the file backend which does
not need any external services to work.
Keyrings in this package may have security risks or other implications.
These backends were extracted from the main keyring project to make them
available for those who wish to employ them, but are discouraged for general
production use. Include this module and use its backends at your own risk.
This package contains the Python 2 version of keyrings.alt.
