Do you think this is a security risk and if not is it a bad UI decision?

I've been reading loads and loads of blogs about the Anaconda redesign.
That was a pretty major change. Something like showing a password is
terribly minor change when developing.

There was a pretty huge outcry about the Anaconda redesign, despite all
the blogs. Now there is some small change, and there is a call that
"major changes need to be hashed out".

Seems like nothing they'd do would ever be good enough. Getting
consensus before most commits sounds like a good way to scare away
