Description Aleksey Nogin 2001-10-12 17:46:28 EDT
When doing an FTP install of Enigma I noticed that anaconda was printing
IOError messages from time to time (in the syslog console) and those
messages contained the complete URL of the package which included the
(slightly obscured) password. I would consider this a pretty minor problem,
but still...

We just use the stock ftplib.py from python... Trond?
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-12-06 11:48:37 EST
Does the development installer (with the new python) show it as well? Also,
wouldn't the best way to handle that be within the installer? (catch the
exception) It's a very useful debugging tool, so I don't think we should change
the default behaviour.

Deferring to future release.
