      Description

      1. First of all the changing password form should have a field that prompts for the "Current Password" (see XWIKI-6312 ).

      2. When the password is entered we could validate the strength of the new password entered ("too short ...", etc). (see XWIKI-5469 ). Also when the 2 passwords don't match the notification should be displayed inline ("the passwords don't match ..."), not as a JS modal.

      3. The submit button label should be "Save" (see XWIKI-6288)

      4. After the two passwords are entered there is no message sent to the user to inform him that the operation was successfully.

      5. The changing password link is available just in profile view mode. If you are editing your profile you will not find it.
      5.1. Also you can't change the user password from Administration:Users from the same reason.
