Hi all,

I will at some point in the 0.4 line of cirros release images with that
change.  I would not intend to change it back to 0.3.

I want to be clear that I didn't make the change "just because".
I did fail to reference the bug in the commit you linked above, but it
I did in commit 95f4ffa2 [3].  It fixed Bug 1454144 [4].  For non-english
speaking users, the colon and right parentheses were difficult to type.
I suspect this was related to a keyboard mapping issue through qemu or
elsewhere, but the fix seems sane.

I picked gocubsgo as the new password.  It had to be something, other
options 'beatohio' [5] or some phrase indicating how bad the Cardinals
are. ;)

I'm quite grateful for all the good karma that you all sent to the
Cubs to help them win.  Thanks.
