Description

The registration form at https://login.wordpress.org/register states:

Your password will be emailed here.

This text can be found in the code here.

In WordPress 4.3, password reset links replaced passwords sent via email. Suggesting this text change to match what is seen in core.

Registration confirmation will be emailed to you.

In 10206:

Login: Your email won't be emailed to you, but you will receive a link via email to set a password.

Also removes the word 'Required', if it's not obvious that these two fields need to be set, the error message will take care of that.

Props RMarks.
Fixes #5390.

I went with different text, as I thought that Registration confirmation will be emailed to you. could be misinterpreted as it'd be a confirmation-of-action-only email and not a email that they actually needed to pay attention for :)
