When using LDAP authentication, user passwords cannot be changed and an error message appears: "This account uses an external authentication source. Impossible to change the password."

It could be nice if this error message were customizable. We could setup a sign like "Please send an e-mail to your system administrator", "Use this URL to change your password", etc...

That's a good idea and I'd love to have this configurable at work too.
It definitely makes sense to have proper text here, to inform users of the right URL to use to change their passwords.

+1 it's language dependent, probably it should be some kind of plugin.
