Subject: [Freeipa-users] Changing randomly generated password complexity?

Hello all,

Does anyone know if it's possible to change the complexity of the passwords 
that IPA generates?

Here's a typical scenario:

User:  "can you reset my password?"

Me:  "Random password: 9opLSv6jhN_Q"

User: "it doesn't work."

Me: (internal sigh) "can you copy and paste it, you only need it once and then 
you can reset it to whatever you want."

User: "it still doesn't work."

Me: <clickity click> "your password is now 'bob'."

User: "it works now!"

The government is going to read our mail anyway, might as well make it tough 
for them.  GPG Public key ID:  B6A1A7C6
