when you install newscoop, you can assign a password shorter than 6 characters. when you use the admin interface, it checks for "at least 6 characters long".
i suggest to change the admin interface to "at least 5 characters long" and do the same for the intallation procedure.
all sample template sets use the user pass word combination: admin / admin - these are 5 characters. and to produce template packs in the future, we should have the login / password consistent.
