Description Frank Krüger 2018-02-18 16:45:32 UTC
After the update to sudo 1.8.22 (Tumbleweed 20180216) "sudo" gives the password prompt "[sudo] password for %{p}:", instead of "[sudo] password for root:".

Confirmed by me an several users in factory mailing-list.

Sudo still work as intended btw.

Confirming the problem. As of today's Tumbleweed snapshot, I too see the password prompt string as "[sudo] password for %{p}:"

Thank you for the report. The fix (sr#578010) is on its way to openSUSE:Factory. 

I'm closing this bug as fixed.
