Would it be OK for you if you can rebuild the package with an 'with-password' option?

Comment 3 Fabian Affolter 2010-09-06 18:24:56 EDT
Upstream says that '--with-password-string' is recommended.  I understand that for user this can be an annoyance but better be save than sorry.  

gnubiff-2.2.13-3.fc15 has a build condition that allows users to rebuild the package with '--with-password'
