Description

Users often get confused by the default admin password setting in server.conf, as it seems like it might be the password for the admin user, rather than the initial password.

Rather than keeping the initial password in server.conf, pulp-manage-db should prompt the user for the default admin password (and allow a flag to provide a path to a file containing it for automation).

Alternatively, the password could be passed via stdin for automation.

Agreed, this should not be a property in server.conf. Not sure prompting pulp-manage-db is appropriate though. Suggest we just hard code this to admin/admin and ensure it's well documented. And, document that users should change after it installation.

Deprecate the property and make this a backwards incompatible story?
