Revisiting Mercurial and file keyrings

In a previous post I talked about setting up an encrypted file based keyring store for Mercurial. With some recent updates of the Python keyring modules, the setup changed a little bit again.

The file-backed keyrings got moved out to the keyrings.alt package. $HOME/.local/share/python_keyring/keyringrc.cfg needs to be adjusted as follows:

[backend]
default-keyring=keyrings.alt.file.EncryptedKeyring
