$DefaultPasswords['edit'] is used only when no other password
is specified for a page or group. So, if you want to set a site-wide
edit password, use $DefaultPasswords['edit'] to do it.

So far this is all correct.

If I'm reading this correctly, that would mean that the password
for JenGagne is the same as the 'admin' password that was set above.
That's not a problem, but it does mean that JenGagne is effectively
an admin and can obtain access to any page.

This looks okay also.

Is there a 'read' password set for the site or on the Site.AuthUser page somehow?
It's not a problem if there is such a password, but it seems odd that
viewing Site.AuthUser is requesting a password.

Not as you've described it above, since it appears that the JenGagne
password is being set to the same password as the 'admin' password.
The real test would be if the passwords are different.
Hope this helps -- write back with more details.
