I don't understand it either, Doug. If he doesn't want to enter a 
password, all he has to do is set it that way in MCC.

Personally, I think he's idiotic. Let just anybody do updates? Not me. 
Mageia, like Mandriva, sets the update password to the user password. 
One of the first things I do is set it to the root password.
