#5422: Group invitations are only visible to the inviter

Component:  UX/UI         |    Version:
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 The current `bp_group_has_invites()` loop only returns invitations for
 which the current user is the inviter to display on the "send invites"
 page of a group. (This is true even for site and group admins.)

 This causes mysterious interactions for users. For instance, if a user
 tries to invite someone who's already been invited by someone else, the
 process seems to fail (without explanation). And if he contacts the group
 admin, the admin doesn't really know who's invited either.

 My own opinion is that if you have permission to invite others to a group,
 you should be able to see who's already been invited just for simplicity's
 sake. Perhaps only site admins, group admins and the original inviter can
 modify the invitation (confirming or "sending" it and removing it),

 Thanks for your thoughts.
