Description Justin Zobel 2022-11-20 00:17:01 UTC
The password not matching warning comes up as the user is typing their password in the second box, this is distracting and will always be the case until the user finishes typing their password.

Alternatively if waiting until the Create button is pushed isn't desired. The check could happen when the user stops typing for x seconds or milliseconds.

kcms/users: debounce the password match message

Users don't need to see that their passwords don't match until
after they stop typing.
