Subscribers can request that it be mailed by going to the options login
page, providing their email address and clicking the Remind button.

A list admin or site admin can only get a user's password by retrieving
it from the lists/<listname>/config.pck file. The easiest way is with
the bin/dumpdb tool, but of course you need at least read access to
the file.
