That is a rant, not a description of a problem. The simple fact that the
package "libgnome-keyring" has the word "gnome" in it is not sufficient
to qualify as a problem. As Todd wrote, libgnome-keyring itself has very
minimal dependencies, it does not require the rest of the GNOME
components. So the fact that git depends on it is not really a problem.
