> Currently I have only found one simple password manager: pwsafe. It can be used from command line, can work with X clipboard and uses good cryptography I think. But it is not supported now and it's code depends on readline, autotools, written in C++ and consists of one .cpp file. As I can see suckless projects mostly works with X11 in the unix way. pwsafe also do some trick with X11: it puts password into clipboard and clears it after you put password somewhere with middle-click. So if someone there understands both cryptography, X11 and UNIX well it can be a good idea for new suckless project. Maybe code can be simplified by switching to another database structure not compatible with PasswordSafe.
Sorry for formatting. I'll switch to better editor next time.
