Report creation form shouldn't contain "Create new project" link

It's certainly overkill for the report creation form to link such a rarely used feature as https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/create/

In our case, yes. Then again, I believe only Project-Creators see that link.

Wrong, the rest of users see this as well. If they click, they get.

You do not have permission to create new projects.
Users with the "Can Create Projects" capability:

Members of the project "Project-Creators" can take this action.

Alright, this is indeed overkill.

Resolved upstream. The solution is to show the link only to those having permissions to create projects. This means that 99% of our users will not see the link. Good compromise imho. See https://secure.phabricator.com/T6969 to follow the discussion.
