The default of PermitRootLogin=yes will change into PermitRootLogin=no in Fedora 22:

This might have an impact on our rear recovery image with ssh to root

We already enable root login in our code:

$ grep -ri permitroot .
./usr/share/rear/build/GNU/Linux/16_adjust_sshd_config.sh:        sed -i 's/.*PermitRootLogin.*/PermitRootLogin yes/g' $ROOTFS_DIR/etc/ssh/sshd_config

It might indeed be better to only enable root login with key, though.
