Bug#658089: cracklib2: Please add a udeb for early password quality checking in d-i

Package: cracklib2
Severity: wishlist


it would be nice if there was a cracklib udeb which could be integrated into
d-i to allow for password quality checking for the root and first user password
entered during installation. It wouldn't necessarily block installation if the
chosen password is of bad quality, just inform the user. I find it embarrassing
if Debian accepts root passwords like "1234" or "qwer" without even
complaining. ;)
