Hi everyone,

I was wondering, why olpc user account is locked when creating it?

The thing is I would like to give access to a console in Uruguay's
customized build, as root is password protected. We need that so
the kids/teachers could do some basic maintenance if anything fails
when booting sugar.

What would happen if I delete the line in olpc-development.stream:
chroot $INSTALL_ROOT /usr/bin/passwd -l olpc
and add this one:
chroot $INSTALL_ROOT /usr/bin/passwd -d olpc
