Description

django.contrib.auth should include code and template for a form to change user's email with email confirmation.

Confirmation is required, because if a user changes both email and password incorrectly, he or she loses access to the system without a way to restore.

I'm not sure this is such a common need that it must be in Django itself (rather than say, as a third-party app). Also, different projects may have different requirements that may make crafting a generic solution somewhat difficult. If you implement something that you think is suitable, please offer your proposal on the DevelopersMailingList to see if there's consensus to include it. If so, we could reopen this ticket.
