Description Jan Pazdziora 2008-07-22 08:54:10 UTC
When you create a new organization in RHN Satellite v5.1.0, the 
administrator password is stored in plain text into the web_customer 

That field isn't even used, we should drop the column from our DB entirely.

In Spacewalk 0.1, the Java code does not pass in a password to the call to the
stored proc: create_new_org. But the database column is still there.

This is related to Satellite's bug 450038 and bug 453664.
