[GeoNode-devel] REGISTRATION_OPEN setting

Geonode is an impressive development but just in my 6 months experience with it I have seen several serious security flaws.

I wonder if a sponsor (World Bank?) would be interested in funding a security audit of Geonode to bring it up to scratch.

 I wonder, why do we have REGISTRATION_OPEN setting (used in https:// github.com/GeoNode/geonode/blob/master/geonode/templates/account/
signup.html#L15)? It seems it overlaps with ACCOUNT_OPEN_SIGNUP setting from account app: http://django-user-accounts.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

 What's more, this setting is used in templates only, so one can create new user simply by sending POST request with form contents.

 I'd suggest use ACCOUNT_OPEN_SIGNUP instead, and set it to False in settings as a default.
