Subject Comment on documentation

Thanks, Eroma and Suresh for getting the Airavata installation documentation [1] together.
I want to put a couple of comments on the record (for future Googling) but I don’t think

total.  So the default passwords for the airavata user that are used in the document won’t

To set password strength to low, see for example [3]. I’m not recommending this, just saying
