 Based on https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/32589#comment:20.

 I think this needs some discussion and focus in it's own ticket.

 In the new UI a PW gets generated for you. You have to  take an action
 "Show password" or "Generate new password" to make the field show. Then
 you can edit that if you would like. At that point you decide you would
 rather generate one again. There is no clear way to do so.

 A few things worth noting

 On user profile you can click "Generate new password" again and it will.

 On new user you can click "Show password" and it will regenerate a pw
 again.  (This is not great and where the change needs to happen)

 Perhaps the easy solution is to change the wording on the button when the
 field is shown to "Generate new password".

 A small issue that can be taken care of at the same time is the "Show
 password" button shows above the PW field while the "Generate new
 password" button shows below. The button below looks better.
