Not requiring "current password" on registration#edit for Devise

I followed the Ruby on Rails tutorial, really good! I had a quick question...

How do you allow users to not have to type in their current password when updating their registration information?

I don't know specifically how devise is set up to check that, but you would need to delete the field from the view, and then check the controllers and models for any places that check that field and remove the code.

For more practice, just code your own authentication system :)

Where are the controllers and models for devise?

That's a great question. I can't seem to locate them either... I know you can override them if you wanted. That should be referenced in the Devise Documentation
