There is more than a draft.
There is code that is annoying people, hence this thread.
The suggested change that suppsedly is not here
yet is to have a uniform password-quality standard.
The password setting "request" as part of an install
is different from all other password settings.
It comes before the user has been able to customize the system.
Any quality standard that is part of an install should be advisory
only, regardless of any otherwise uniform standard.
Whether others are advisory should be customizeable.
The above is stuff thats all being worked on, yelling at anyone is
unlikely to change the speed at which it gets done.
Does the password standard for install-time
passwords currently come from anaconda?
If so, heaping comments on the anaconda people is the thing to do.
If not, the comment heap should go elsewhere.
In neither case do I see the point of patience.
Patience is likely to give the people that
matter a false sense of approval or tolerance.
You're of course welcome to do whatever you like, but in my experience
Open source maintainers treat impatient / intolerant people either by
( consciously or unconsciously ) ignoring them ("I have 50 bug reports
from patient / tolerant people to look at") and/or
by even becoming more determined to not make the change suggested by
such people ("If I make this change it might make people think we
respond to impatient / intolerant people").
So, IMHO, you are not pursuing the best way to get your change made.
