> Passwords into the keychain
> ---------------------------
>                 Key: JITSI-875
>                 URL: http://java.net/jira/browse/JITSI-875
>             Project: jitsi
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: development
>    Affects Versions: waiting4volunteers
>         Environment: Operating System: Mac OS X
> Platform: Mac (PPC)
>            Reporter: andreaskrueger
> I gather that you store all user choices into:
>     /Users/me/Library/Application Support/SIP
> Communicator/sip-communicator.properties
> That is not the standard Mac way of storing passwords.
> On OS X, all passwords end up in the keychain.
>    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keychain_%28Mac_OS%29
> Imagine I migrate to a new computer, 
> then I will probably forget to take that 
> "sip-communicator.properties" file with me. 
> All chat passwords ... gone.
> But I will definitely export my keychain files.
> Feature Request: 
>   Please consider to start using the keychain.
> P.S.: Your solution has advantages, too 
> - if I migrate to a different OS, 
> I might be able to use that config-file??? -
> ... so keep it in place, but perhaps consider 
> to _additionally_ store all passwords in the keychain?
