You submitted a bad password! Password not changed

string journalist_app/ reads “You submitted a bad password! Password not changed.”

Does that mean that the user entered a wrong current password or that the new password he submitted is invalid (in length or accepted characters, etc)?

It looks like the first, but the string string is ambiguous.

It is the first indeed. The users does not get to choose a new password, they are given a secure passphrase. Changing a password can only happen if you have the current password to avoid locking yourself out. And if you type the right current password, a new one is given to you.

I see.

In this case, @dachary, I suggest the phrasing in English be something along “you submitted an incorrect password…”

“Bad” might imply malformed as far as I have seen. Thus it could confuse some people at first, even though they will learn later that they cannot create a password themselves.

I have submitted a bug report.
