Description Damien Durand 2006-08-22 17:55:45 EDT

The Fedora Usability team has made a patch for the system-config-rootpassword
tool. With this patch, the utility is more intuitive and sexy ;-)
You can take a look with this gif file :

Thanks in advance

I can't comment on the code quality, but the text needs a little revision.
Suggest changing at least:
  "You can change the root password in filling \nthe following fields:"
  "You can change the root password by filling \nthe following fields:"

  "the fields are not the same, please filling \nagain"
  "The two fields did not match.  Please try \nagain"

etc.  (Maybe reuse the old text, if it's already been translated)
Comment 3 Damien Durand 2006-08-22 18:26:33 EDT
Thank you for your comments, the labels are fixed by this new path :

For the old text, I think, it's not really coherent with the new interface,
tooltips etc... but yeah that can be a problem with the translation teams.

Just one thing, in the demo, when the pass-o-meter show the strong but the
tooltip says that it's based on a reversed dictionnary word, it was because the
tooltip was not updated. It had been fixed in the patch.
A password is only considered as strong when it is long enough (the limit was
put at 8 caracters) and it validates the cracklib test. Well it had a new
dependency in the rpm, but cracklib is already in core as a dependence of pam.
The pass-o-meter is only here to give a feedback to "average" end-users and not

In your animation, the 'Change root password' button become enabled while typing
the password a second time, before the second password is even the same length
as the first.   This should probably be fixed.

Sorry for the delay - I've commited this to HEAD with a small change to address

Will be in rawhide shortly.
