FS#402 - Practical way to bypass e-mail portion of registration

I have disabled sending e-mail from my server and therefore have to manually edit the password field in the database when adding a user to activate the account. It would be nice for the admin to be able to set the password and therefore finish activation of an account.

Also, according to the Wiki there is a Accounts section under the Administration tab where accounts can be added, but I don't have an Accounts section.

The site says I have version 2.36.1.

Thank you,

Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  The admin user can now explicitly set a user's password. I think this closes everything up.

It's called 'Users and Clients' under the admin page -- there's a 'Register' link along the table header.

The "requiring email" thing was a decision made for v2.36 (or maybe 2.35?) and it eliminated many, many bugs with the registration/signup process.

I just committed the last major holdup for v2.37 -- Adding a way for the admin user to explicitly set a password should be straightforward now that the authentication system is properly modularized and pluggable.
