Related to Tails - Feature #11147: Automatically save KeePassX database after every change by default Resolved 02/20/2016

Revision f8a11906 (diff)
Added by anonym 11 months ago

KeePassX: enable "Automatically save after each change" again.

I.e. let's do what we did in Tails 2.x. The regression was introduced
in Tails/Stretch, when migrating the configuration format to that of
KeePassX 2.

Fix-committed: #12544

Do you have an opinion here, as you came up with the current documented workflow for KeePassX + persistence?

It seems like we already agreed to have this option enabled in Tails 2.2, see #11147. So if it is not the case anymore in 3.0, then indeed it's a bug in 3.0.

Regarding having a separate persistent feature for KeePassX, I'd like to skip this discussion unless we find other important scenarios that do not rely on this option. But if people want to discuss this futher, note that:

  • KeePassX can store its database anywhere on the file system so I'd like to hear more about whether this persistent feature would also take care of the password database, how, and whether it would need a migration path for people who have it in ~/Persistent/keepassx.kdbx right now.

So, anonym: can you test whether #11147 is having a regression in 3.0?

Yes, so this is actually a regression in Tails/Stretch, that will be trivial to fix. So let's forget about all the nonsense about a persistence preset.

Looks good to me. Any reason we don't set AutoSaveOnExit=true as well?
