** Description changed:

- Right now, only when gdm3 is installed is a systemd unit created to run
- passwd -d. This is preferable over having a blank password because it
- provides consistency between Desktop and flavors, and it makes it
- quicker to use a tty (and less confusing for people who get stuck
- thinking there's a password they don't know).
+ Feature Freeze Justification
+ ============================
+ A previous Ubuntu GNOME bug fix deleted the password for the live user on 
Ubuntu GNOME, which later carried over to Ubuntu when they switched back to 
GNOME. 
+ 
+ Now seems like the other flavors want this behavior also.
+ 
+ My previous hack from a few years ago of injecting a systemd unit is no
+ longer required, lets just set delete the "blank" password when we add
+ the live session user in casper.
+ 
+ [Test Case]
+ 1. Login to a tty should not require you to press "enter" at the password: 
prompt (for blank password)
+ 2. Under gnome-shell you should not be able to lock the screen with <super+L> 
or through the user menu

** Summary changed:

- Delete the password for the live session on all flavors
+ [FFe] Delete the password for the live session on all flavors
