#4344: "Notify group members of changes via email" UX is lousy

Changes (by hnla):

 * version:  1.5.6 => 1.7


 Prompted by my duplicate ticket #4833.

 In other words this is a one time action that pertains to the current save
 about to be actioned.

 The lousy (marginally so though) UX in all this is the descriptive text,
 this had me wasting time looking at this on behalf of a forum post, I
 should perhaps have known that this was the intention of the input, in
 fact in many senses I ought to have known but clearly that passed me by,

 Words! it's simply a case of writing stuff that is meaningful ** "notify
 all group members of these changes" ** or something along those lines that
 clarifies the action is for this change only

 @boone Yes this is a wholly incorrect use of radio buttons, why was it
 ever written using them, this is a checkbox, it requires no settings check
 as it's not intended as persistent it's simply a check for 'true' or '1'
 at time of submission after which returns to unchecked/empty.

 Strikes me this is a simple change with little consequence accept better
 UX and use of correct form controls.
