I'm looking for a password manager for linux with OTP:

We have contacted the main Password safe developer, he is currently working on

open source software with their products.

work on this until the next release of the windows software is complete.
There, feel better now? :-)
Seriously, I didn't reply because I thought I would be able to be less vague
once the current Windows release stabilizes. By the time that happened, this
