Description Petr Machata 2013-06-09 17:33:42 EDT
When installing RHEL 7 from RHEL-7.0-20130522.0 compose, in Anaconda, in the screen "Configuration", enter "Root Password" screen.  That screen doesn't allow one to view the password.  Some other dialog boxes (at least the ones at wifi setup and at ABRT do) do have this option.  

The same thing hold for "User Creation" screen.
