Description of problem:
Passwords should not be saved in cleartext. When you run katello-installer, it saves the cleartext password.
Not only that, every time you run katello-installer successfully after that it gets echoed back.
Really bad practice.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. katello-installer --foreman-admin-password=redhat
2. katello-installer --capsule-tftp=true
3. Look at your password being displayed.
You see the password printed in clear text.
The same output, but without the password.
Since this issue was entered in Red Hat Bugzilla, the release flag has been
set to ? to ensure that it is properly evaluated for this release.
Is this actually rel note material?
What sort of doc text would be suitable?

Chris, do note the echoing back on subsequent runs is solved already in BZ1125414.
My personal opinion is WONTFIX on saving in clear text, due to the nature of the installer it'd be quite complicated to avoid this. Change the password from the default after installation is the only way to avoid the saved password being the correct one. The installer saves a variety of other confidential info too like oauth tokens which are just as useful as the admin password, but all this stuff is only readable by the root user.
I agree lets close this one out since the subsequent runs is already solved.
Moving to wontfix based on your suggestions.
