Group (and possibly user) permission "Add User" does not work

Reported by: Rob Taylor Owned by: nobody
Component: Core (Management commands) Version: master
Severity: Keywords: Group, Add User, Permissions, Denied

I have a small cluster of users who I wish to be able to create other users, and that is all.

The following happens for a User with a group permission of "Can Add Users" set:

The Green "Add Another" button appears, but when it is clicked, the popup appears with "Permission Denied". The same happens when trying to access the "Add Another" from any page.

The only way to get this working properly is to enable "Can Change Users". This isn't an acceptable compromise, because it allows users to edit their own user, and enable "SuperUser Status". Is this problem being looked at? It does not appear to be an isolated event, as my colleague seems to be seeing the same problem.

Same problem is reported for newforms-admin in #6977. That's where it will be fixed, I believe, since old admin isn't worth fixing at this point. That defect identifies the line you need to change to fix it yourself if you'd like to patch your own copy of Django in the meanwhile.
