When using the get_password_validation() rules for validation a password_cofirm field, the error message returned is "password confirm must be the same as password confirm".

In the ORM module, the user model sets the password_confirm rule as follows:

return Validation::factory($values)
            ->rule('password', 'min_length', array(':value', 8))
            ->rule('password_confirm', 'matches', array(':validation', ':field', 'password'));

See https://github.com/kohana/orm/blob/3.3/develop/classes/model/auth/user.php#L140-142

The 'matches' validation message is ':field must be the same as :param2', see here https://github.com/kohana/core/blob/3.3/develop/messages/validation.php#L18

Without digging too deep in the validation classes, it appears the issue here is the order of the validation fields.

To keep the messages consistant, I think we should make a small adjustment to the model class to adjust the order of the fields passed into the validation rule.

I think it makes more sense to fix it by adjusting the message file. The matches method takes three parameters: $array, $field, $matches so the third parameter is the one you are matching, not the second.

Moving this to core since the issue was in the system message and not ORM
