Yes, this is already fixed in the current upstream version of libpwquality library where no spaces around the '=' are allowed.

Hi Tomáš,

Just to clarify: this means that the correct syntax for RHEL < 7.3 is to use spaces? (Which will change when the upstream version gets into 7.3, and then no spaces will be allowed.)
Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2015-11-10 13:11:07 EST
No, my sentence above was a little bit unclear. The current version upstream and in Fedora tolerates any number of spaces including zero. In RHEL-7 at least a single space on each side of '=' is required.
This is a request to backport the current Fedora behaviour to RHEL.
