Hey all;

I'm running IPA internally to control access to our cloud environment. 

I must admit, I do not understand the password requirements. I have had them 
set to the defaults. I read this:

I have the minimum character classes set to 0. When people use SSH to change 
their passwords, they get "Based on a dictionary word" for passwords that have 
nothing to do with dictionary words. 

I can't find anywhere in the documentation a break down of what makes an 
unacceptable versus acceptable password. 

Can anyone help me figure out what to tell my users? I think people would get a 
lot less frustrated if they knew why "C679V375" was "too simple" when the 
password policy has 0 required classes.
