When opening a self-hosted or central-hosted document, Glom does not

By intention. See NEWS or ChangeLog.

If the latter is the case, then at least for central hosting, I guess
we'd have to save the password which the user gave us when creating the
database in the document,

We now don't ask for a password when creating a document. More
importantly, we don't share over the network by default. That must be
chosen explicitly from the File menu.

We do when the database is centrally hosted, which makes sense of
course, because we need to log in to the database server. However, when
opening a document, I don't see how we can get the password to log in to
the central database server now.

 to be able to connect to it again later (this
currently fails because of this reason). However, I am not sure whether
it is a good idea to do so, at least not without letting the user know.

If there is a problem with opening existing documents, please file a
bug, maybe with a test .glom file.

Done; see
