Is there a way to reduce the requirements of strong passwords on 
K12LTSP.  I have a middle school computer teacher who claims that her 
students can't change their passwords.  I have given them easy access to 
Usermin and have tested the heck out of it and I can change passwords.  
The teacher can't seem to understand what I tell her about strong 
passwords.  I have sent her definite instructions on how to create a 
strong password that will pass the tests, but she complains to 
administrators that the "system" won't let the students change their 

I guess I need to loosen the password requirements.  Where would I do that"
