Auth has errors in unit tests when Admin isn't in INSTALLED_APPS

The contrib.auth module fails some of its unit tests with errors if contrib.admin isn't listed in INSTALLED_APPS.

This seems to be because contrib.auth is dependent on these templates:

  • registration/password_change_form.html
  • registration/password_reset_email.html
  • registration/password_reset_form.html

These templates are in contrib/admin/templates/.

These are the tests that are failing:

  • In ChangePasswordTest:
    • test_password_change_fails_with_invalid_old_password
    • test_password_change_fails_with_mismatched_passwords
  • In PasswordResetTest
    • test_confirm_complete
    • test_confirm_different_passwords
    • test_confirm_invalid
    • test_confirm_invalid_post
    • test_confirm_valid
    • "Email is sent if a valid email address is provided for password reset" (test_email_found)

I'm attaching the output from when I run the tests.

PS- There are also errors in the tests if the content type or session applications are missing. This doesn't seem like as much of a problem since those apps are more integral to how auth works. They're also both part of the INSALLED_APPS list by default, unlike the admin app.
