I agree that having default username and password (especially with admin

The intent of the default username/password was indeed for dev/testing
only and I would argue that we should still keep them there.
This will make it easier for the new users trying things out and for us
when we're helping them debug any setup issues.
Since we have different set of tools for setting up the dev/prod
environments this should not be a problem.
What do you think?
I don't have an issue leaving it in place for devel/testing but I'm
sure what that would look like. Remove for productization? It seems
simplest to just remove the default. Devel and test can specify the same
defaults for convenience.
FWIW, Katello will be removing defaults.
