In the LDAP authentication sources set up for LDAP, it shows the saved Manager password in cleartext on the form. Wouldn't it be a good idea to not show it at all? The one editing the form should know it already, but to prevent trouble I'd prefer to know that no one will ever see the password again.
Similarly when typing in the password there, can it also be hidden or shown as * instead?

Agreed -- passwords should never be echoed back to the browser. This isn't a high priority fix for us, as the LDAP configuration form is not a regularly-used page, but I've created a Bugzilla entry for a future release; see http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2971
