Thanks. Here's the final version of the patch for both
Gnats and Gnatsweb.

I've taken care of the appropriate documentation for
Gnats also.

Can someone please commit these patches.

Done. I made some minor changes to the documentation parts of the patches. Here is the Changelog entry:

2002-10-14  Pankaj K. Garg  <address@hidden>

        * gnatsd.access: Say a bit more about password encryption methods.
        Mention empty passwords.  Say that default access level is
        `listdb', not `edit'.  Change example entry to set blank password
        for view access.

        * gnats.texi (gnatsd.user_access): Say a bit more about password
        encryption methods.  Amend examples to illustrate the use of blank
        passwords.  Demonstrate the new fall-through mechanism for
        password matching.

        * gnatsd.c (password_match): Clean up password matching.  Handle
        blank passwords.
        (findUserAccessLevel): If the password given during the login is
        not blank and doesn't match the correct password, deny access.

        * cmds.c (GNATS_user): Handle case where a blank password has been
        given by user.  Change usage message to allow for blank passwords.
        (gnatsdChdb): Handle blank passwords.
        (GNATS_chdb): Allow for one, two or three arguments to CHDB.
        (GNATS_help): Amend help text for CHDB and USER.
