Good idea. Yes, I'll create GitHub issues to add the missing information
to the official docs with the exact page TBD.
In addition to docs and ansible, would it be useful to add a bootstrap
alert to the site-base template for logged in admins that straight up says:
"Your instance is not secure Please consult the docs at XYZ to change
default passwords."? It could run a few checks to make sure the 3 accounts
have non-default passwords. That way it would be really hard for system
admins to forget to update. Like Google Chrome does when you need to
