Description

The current value of USER_PASSWORD_MIN_LENGTH is 3, which looks a bit too small to me. It should be 6 or 8. This won't affect already set passwords, but new passwords will need to be longer.

Nowadays, 3 characters-long passwords are too insecure.

Yeah, seems like a reasonable thing to relnote in the "Other Enhancements and Changes" section.
