Hi, so we can in fact do this since ssh keys can be used to
cryptographically sign files.

Please respond via private email with the following information:

A plaintext file containing your AUR username, and your desired reset
A signature file generated via the following command:

openssl pkeyutl -sign -inkey ~/.ssh/my_aur_ssh_private_key -in
the_plaintext_file > the_plaintext_file.sig

Then I will verify this signature via the public key in your AUR
profile, and change your password for you.
