The "right-purge" message needs to be updated since it always require confirmation
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

After T135170: Require POST in ?action=purge getting "fixed", the "purge" right still claims it grants purges without confirmation.

So I guess we can remove the "purge" right, since it has no effect now.

It's not clear for me what's the effect now of the purge right, but the right description definitively needs to reflect current status. It still says Purge the site cache for a page without confirmation
