Re: late_command to get user entered password

Yes.  The late_command part is executed in finish-install.d/07preseed,
while the user setup is in finish-install.d/06user-setup, and the
passwords are cleared just after user.  To get access to the user
password, you would have to either put a hook in pre-pkgsel.d or
earlier in finish-install.d.  Using late_command is not going to work.

Happy hacking,
