  • New user installs TWiki
  • Visits configure, saves without setting a pwd for configure
  • Visits TWikiAdminGroup, intending to elevate themselves to god status
  • Can't change it, cos it's restricted to TWikiAdminGroup
  • Can't log in sudo=sudo cos they didn't set a configure pw
  • Stuck, weeps, abandons TWiki
Possible solution:
  • Force setting a pw in configure
  • Add doc to TWikiAdminGroup to explain how to log in sudo
