Not sure if this is a bug or feature request.
For publishing to google picasa web albums it would be nice for shotwell to remember my google password. I use google's security feature combination of "2-step verification" and "Application-specific passwords".
For applications like shotwell that need access to my google account I generate an application specific password (would look like: vbmbrqdvvygc ajwd )that should only be entered once into the application.
