Description

While investigating #14590 ,
I saw this section in the Administrator Guide:
http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/RedmineSettings#Minimum-password-length

This section is wrong. By default, the minimum password length is 8, not 4
as listed in the Administrator guide.

This can be confirmed by looking at:
http://svn.redmine.org/redmine/trunk/config/settings.yml
where the default value of password_min_length is 8.

Indeed. The minimum length has been increased from 4 to 8 in r10884 (which was first included in Redmine 2.2.0). I've modified RedmineSettings#Minimum-password-length accordingly.
Thanks for reporting this.

Btw: you should be able to edit the wiki yourself too.
