Description Keith Robertson 2012-09-11 09:50:20 EDT
Description of problem:
The installer isn't clear as to which user ID and password is being requested during installation.  It should clearly state the user for which the password is being requested and *why* it is needed.  This help the user understand what is being requested and why.

Suggested interaction:
 Please enter the password for the Postgres admin user, postgres, so that a RHEVM DB can be created:
 Please enter the user name for the Postgres RHEVM DB (default=rhevm): <- This is *really* important for externally administered DBs.
 Please enter the password for the Postgres RHEVM DB user named rhevm:
 Please enter the password for the RHEVM user admin@internal:
