User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0
Build ID: 20130329030848

Steps to reproduce:

in the local version of moztrap (localhost:8000)
1. Manage->Users
2. click the trash-bin icon on the "last" superuser

Actual results:

the superuser can be deleted. Then, it is not possible to recover the user from moztrap.

Expected results:

it might be better to prevent the deletion to avoid a work on the django

it was found that clicking the deactivate button on the superuser landed on the same issue. So, the title can be rephrased as "possible to delete/deactivate the "last" superuser.".

Patch for this bug

I modified the User model a little bit.
Now, when deletion/deactivation of a User is triggered, moztrap will check whether the one is the "last" superuser or not.
Shiro-- this looks very close.  I found an edge case.  I left a message on github on the PR as follows:

@sh1r0 : So I tested this a bit, and it does prevent deactivation when you are in the manage/users list and click the green button and select disable. But for some reason it does NOT prevent this when you edit the user and uncheck the "active" checkbox and save.

I think this would require you override the save function and do your check there as well. Perhaps if they ARE the last superuser, allow the save to continue, but silently set active=True.

Mass-closing remaining MozTrap bugs as WONTFIX, due to 1) the Mozilla-hosted instance being decommissioned (see https://wiki.mozilla.org/TestEngineering/Testrail), and, for now, 2) the still-up code archived at its GitHub page: https://github.com/mozilla/moztrap (we'll decide what's next for that, in the near future).
