  Description     : The password manager for GNOME2

I would like to have Gpass packaged in Debian again. It was present in Debian,
but removed. See

#617590 - RM: gpass -- RoQA; dead upstream, low popcon, alternatives exist,
orphaned - Debian Bug report logs

I fixed (hopefully) the problem that prevented Gpass to compile with gcc
versions newer than 4.4, and also updated gpass to version 0.5.1 from its
official site. The code: .
Gpass now compiles succesfully. If you compile Gpass manually with compilers
newer than gcc-4.4, configure script should be edited as well, e.g.
LDFLAGS="$LDFLAGS -Wl,--no-as-needed". See these bug reports:

Bug #770994 “gpass version 0.5.0-2 failed to build on amd64 with...” : Bugs
: “gpass” package : Ubuntu

Bug #505921 “[needs-packaging] newer version” : Bugs : “gpass” package
: Ubuntu

Gpass is useful. E.g., it allows to copy both ID and the password with single
Ctrl+Shift+B, and then paste them one by one.
