[libvirt PATCH] docs: secret: do not use a valuable password

Posted by Ján Tomko 1 week, 5 days ago
Our website displays "**** ******" as the example password.
Despite its tradition rooted in 18th century French literature,
we cannot assume it to be public.

Use a random string of letters and numbers instead.
