Allow triggering of user password reset email via the API
<Ryan_Lane> RoanKattouw: is there any way to request a password through email via the api?
<Reedy> No, it'd be trivial enough to add though if wanted
<RoanKattouw> Not that I know of
<Reedy> In theory, Akshays rewrite should allow that if it doesn't already
<Reedy> If you've got a need for it.. I can do it, it won't be much work
<Ryan_Lane> I do have a need
<Ryan_Lane> I'm making a script to automatically link SVN accounts with labs
<Reedy> File it in BZ, I'll see about getting to it in the morning
<Reedy> It'll be fairly standalone hopefully, so pushing in 1.17wmf1/1.18 shouldn't be an issue..
<Ryan_Lane> it gives them a wiki name, changes their password to something random, logs in as them, and then should send them a password reset email
<Ryan_Lane> I'm using the 1.18 branch, if that's easier
