I have another idea if you used your aur account you probably have added an 
ssh public key. So an admin could do something like.

ssh-keygen -f "your_public_key" -e -m PKCS8 > "your_public_key.pem.pub"

and then

openssl rsautl -encrypt -pubin -inkey "your_public_key.pem.pub" -ssl -in 
"text_file_with_password_reset_link" -out "encrypted_text_file"

then you could do

openssl rsautl -decrypt -inkey ~/.ssh/id_rsa -in "encrypted_text_file" -out 

Hey we are using arch there are solutions everywhere you just have to find 


PS: Not tested if it really works ;)
