Description Alex Richert 2015-09-14 20:14:25 EDT
Description of problem:
When setting root and initial user passwords in anaconda, passwords below some threshold quality aren't accepted. This enforcement of password quality seems unnecessary, especially for the initial user creation where using no password at all is an option. I encountered this while test driving F23 in a virtual machine purely for "exploratory" purposes, so security is unimportant and I'd like to set the root and user passwords to something obvious, say, "password". It seems like a warning/verification dialog "Are you sure you want to use a weak password..." would be a good compromise.

Correction: using no password at all is an option both for root and initial user.
