[Mailman-Users] List Owner Password Reminder

Is there a "self service" password reminder for list owners?

I am in the process of trying to deploy mailman within my company to
replace a old majordomo instance. Majordomo access/authentication was
managed by local LDAP credentials so users had no real excuse not to know
their passwords. This was setup long ago and predates my joining the
company by 15+ years. In the case of mailman it looks like passwords for
list owners are tied to the software. We have many lists (1000+) so was
hoping I could avoid getting into the business of password resets if
possible. My goal would be to add a "I forgot my password" button to the
admin login page that would kind of force that monthly password reminder
right then.  I know list members have several options but from what I have
seen owners do not.

Is that even possible?
