#217 closed defect (FIXED)

Some "verification needed" messages are not clear that _e-mail address_ is to be verified

Description

These messages:


-  "Almost done! Your account still needs to be verified."
-  "Someone has registered an account with this username, but it
   still has to be verified."
   say the account needs to be verified. But really what needs to be
   *verified* is that the e-mail address belongs to the account's
   owner. The account itself needs to be *activated*.

Hm.

I've changed these lines to:


-  Email verification needed!
-  Almost done! Your account still needs to be activated.
-  Someone has registered an account with this username, but it
   still has to be activated.

The last two have a couple of other lines that help give some
useful context:

::

            <p>
              {% trans -%}
                Almost done! Your account still needs to be activated.
              {%- endtrans %}
            </p>
            <p>
              {% trans -%}
                An email should arrive in a few moments with instructions on how to do so.
              {%- endtrans %}
            </p>

and

::

            <p>
              {% trans -%}
                Someone has registered an account with this username, but it still has to be activated.
              {%- endtrans %}
            </p>
    
            <p>
              {% trans login_url=request.urlgen('mediagoblin.auth.login') -%}
                If you are that person but you've lost your verification email, you can <a href="{{ login_url }}">log in</a> and resend it.
              {%- endtrans %}
            </p>

Given that additional context, I think that makes things clear
enough. Reopen this if you feel otherwise.

Thanks!
