Description

I've wondered everytime and decided to play safe (because booting from DVD is slooow) by setting a password when doing the profiling step leading to an updated squashfs order, but it seems one doesn't need root privileges when fetching the boot profile file. Can we please drop a line in release_process.mdwn serving as a reminder there's no need to set up a password?

Release process: make it clear that one needs to login with default settings when generating an updated boot profile (Closes: #16466).

We want to optimize for the default settings.

Absolutely! Me and intrigeri often push tiny fixes or clarifications like these to the release process without review, so feel free to do so yourself!
