#5789: Buddypress doesn't send password when admin register new user on MU

 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 WP MU 3.9.1
 BP 2.0.2

 When creating a new user on WP MU from the admin interface, there is no
 option for a password and WP generates a random password. The user is
 asked to activate his account and is told "Thank you for activating"; with
 BP disabled, it is a thank you message and has the randomly generated
 password shown. The user is sent a verification email with username and
 "password: [User Set]". At no point in the registration is the user ever
 shown his password.

 Would be useful if on MU or if registered through admin, user is shown
 random pw on thank you screen and if it were emailed to the user as well.
 IMO it's a bug if the password is never shown to the user.

 Hopefully this isnt a duplicate, I've seen some things similar on other
 forums and one other ticket that seemed to briefly touch on this I didn't
 see a solution, fix, or mention other than manually dealing with it, which
 is not a suitable solution for all purposes.
