Re: username/password is displayed in Linux process list

We use CruiseControl as well. To get around this, we use an account that has only read rights to the repository. We also cache those credentials on the box where the build happens. The idea is that if someone can log onto the computer, it assumed they also have rights to build. This allows us to not display that information in logs and screen consoles.

Not sure if you setup is like ours, but hope this helps,
