The Wikimedia Foundation security team is implementing a new password
policy and requirements. [0] You can learn more about the project on [1]

These new requirements will apply to new accounts and privileged
accounts. New accounts will be required to create a password with a
minimum length of 8 characters. Privileged accounts will be prompted
to update their password to one that is at least 10 characters in

These changes are planned to be in effect on December 13th. If you
think your work or tools will be affected by this change, please let
us know on the talk page. [2]
