Question

One "quick and dirty" workaround for registration approval might be to change the destination of the current verification email. It could be sent to the members of the TWikiAdminGroup? rather than to the registrant. Once someone in TWikiAdminGroup? felt that the registration was legitimate they could forward/redirect the email to the registrant who could then complete the registration process.

Obviously this is not a "full featured" solution, but I think it is viable as a short-term or mid-term solution for the TWiki I am currently setting up. Any thoughts on this and how I might go about making it happen (i.e. where do I make the appropriate code changes)?

This is a cross-post of a question that I first asked in ApprovingRegistrations.

I think that's an excellent, pragmatic solution.

All you should need to do is modify the teplates/registernotify.tmpl template. No code changes required.

The templates/registernotify.tmpl template actually seems to be the template used for generating the successful registration email after user has registered. I actually achieved the result I was looking for by modifying the templates/registerconfirm.tmpl template. This is the template that generates the confirmation email. I modified the "To:" address to send the email to the TWiki administrator and I modified the contents to provide instructions to the administrator for how to edit and resend the email to the intended registrant.

I really would like to have this feature implemented in the standard version. I feel uncomfortable having to patch templates... Anyone willing to add this feature to standard distribution?
