    HUE-408 [desktop] User creation form usage when first creating a user
    Added custom auth and user creation forms to validate authentication
    and user creation. Added defensive logic around creating first user.
    Added test case to ensure this.

Description From Last Updated
  1. Nice to add the forms, but could we simplify the logic? (e.g. make it readable without hard thinking)
  2. desktop/core/src/desktop/auth/ (Diff revision 1)
    defensive also means we should init it to 'True'
  3. desktop/core/src/desktop/auth/ (Diff revision 1)
    This is complicated to follow. Couldn't we manage the cases independently?
    1) is first user, get him from the form
    2) check auth
    3) if new user not ok delete him
    4) if new user ok createhome dir 
    1. I can't use the user from returned by It is missing the 'backends' member, which is used in login. I'll add a comment explaining this in code.
  1. Nice!
  2. desktop/core/src/desktop/auth/ (Diff revisions 1 - 2)
    do we need a '' or auth_form.get_user() creates him if not there?
    1. authenticate creates if the user doesn't exist!
  3. desktop/core/src/desktop/auth/ (Diff revisions 1 - 2)
    just user.username too?
