small change request: remove that dang password-change dialog from every screen
I don't see a need to have it on *every* screen. It seems awfully redundant, and just ends up cluttering the other screens.
I agree. I think that the change of admin password stuff belongs on the "General options" page, and not on _all_ the pages.
However, I'm undecided in the matter of making this (site) configurable.
IMO, making that configurable would simply be insane.
Too much configurability is simply confusing to the user. Especially if the configuration brings them no actual benefits. In this case, what admin is going to say "wow. I'd be so much happier if I had that screen on *every* page. I just use it ALL the time." None.
Would anyone object if I just put in a hardcoded condition on 'category == "general"' around the call to FormatPasswordStuff() in Mailman.Cgi.admin.FormatConfiguration()?
Seems like the simplest solution. If there is a template or something you can change instead, I'd point there.
