Add a confirm e-mail address field at signup

Description

We have quite a few members signing up and never receiving an e-mail confirmation because they made a typo in their e-mail address at signup. Please add a second e-mail address field to confirm the e-mail address which only allows members to proceed with signup if the e-mail address is identical in both fields.

It is not enought. one could not simply mistype, but use an address for which cannot receive mail. if for some reason the confirm message is refused he as no way to confirm and this would end (see fd2 case some weeks ago, but i withynessed another case at my home) in someone making a second account and asking to delete the fisrst and reassign the username to the second.

The way should be to ask FIRST to enter an email, then using the confirmation code send by e-mail log again and insert username and the other data. that would be immediately effective. Would also reduce the number of ghost users, that registered but never confirmed.

I agree and I would like to see this implemented in Welen. In Rox I think we shouldn't make such major changes any more and this minor improvement will do for now.

I added a confirm e-mail address field on signup pages 1 and 4 and a corresponding error message. Additionally, I cleaned up the translator box on top of these pages, removed broken links and renamed the remaining one: https://gitorious.org/bewelcome/rox/commit/951a0c683c757fa6f9d787f48d48902eb57feb3d
