[xwiki-devs] [proposal] change the welcome message on the registration page.

The registration page currently has message which doesn't reflect the default settings for XE.

"Welcome to the registration form. This will allow you to edit pages, once the admin gives you
appropriate rights."

"Welcome to the registration form." is (IMO) redundant, most people are not excited to be at a
registration form and it doesn't convey any real information.

"This will allow you to edit pages, once the admin gives you appropriate rights." does not reflect
the default settings with XE. This message can be changed from the administration interface as can
the settings so IMO the default message should reflect the default settings.


I propose:

"Sign up here so you can edit pages and participate in the wiki."

Short, to the point, and doesn't dwell on the act of registration which is really only a means to an
end.

WDYT?
