So, probably some of you, at least, follow Fedora, perhaps in part to see what new desktop user oriented decision will make it into the next version of RHEL/CentOS.
You may have noticed how if Fedora, by some odd scheme, deems your password unworthy, you have to click Done two times.
So, the latest Ananconda takes this one step further. Passwords that the system considers weak will no longer be allowed. While this will probably only be a minor inconvenience, (add 3 bangs to the end or something equally meaningless), a few on the fedora-testing list, including myself, think it’s just one more solution seeking a problem.
At present, I don’t know where one can lodge a protest. Hopefully, someone will care enough to file a bugzilla RFE.
Others may think it’s a great idea–at last, users can’t install with a password of 1234.
Anyway, as part of their push for it is that no one minds it, thought I’d mention it here, as many of the desktop oriented decisions get into Fedora, then into RH and it’s already too late.
