Description Andrea Fasano 2020-03-20 14:44:07 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1815537 +++

Description of problem: 
The test infra requires that /etc/passwd will be writable. The underlying issue is not a cve, it is trivial for any container launcher to gain control of /etc/passwd.  The baremetal image is intended for a wide range of uses and this use is deliberate until we have moved all test infra to a 4.x version.
