No encryption password requirements displayed in anaconda

Description of problem:
There are no password requirements displayed in anaconda, when user is asked for password to disks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup basic partitioning with encryption
2. When asked for password, observe the dialog.
3. Write short password (like 'redhat').
4. Write simple password (like '12345678').
1. Anaconda doesn't say any requirements for password.
2. Red sign appears, nothing else. User can't continue, but he is not informed why. (Yes, after some time he finds out, that there's a hint when he goes over the red sign, but this is really not intuitive)
1. Anaconda should inform user about password requirements BEFORE he starts to enter it.
2. If the password is not set correctly, user should know why. Current behaviour is not enough.
Attaching screenshot from this step. I suppose log files are not required since this is not a failure.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
