Description

the very first time a user runs sage, they are asked for the Admin password. It would be nice is there was a programmatic approach to setting that password from the command line. This would greatly simplify the installation of SAGE from an RPM (or a DEB) package.

I'm not sure an admin password ever needs to even be set now. Having a default admin password is certainly a security risk in some cases.

It would be nice if there was some basic feature , such as the one that allows to access administrator rights. The way the installation from command line works can be not very intuitive for a basic user, so I think if not a default admin password, a better mechanism, atleast through sage application can be considered
