Sorry for delayed reply. Was away for couple days.
Yes. Now it is more clear.

Let me summarize:

1) Provide a self service password reset capability.

2) Provide a self service interface to reset forgotten password using
some kind of temporary code.

3) Provide a self service enrollment capability with admin approval and
notification workflow

4) Provide a self service account decommissioning with admin approval

None of these are implemented so I opened tickets on your behalf.
We would be glad if someone would pick it up however please start with
the design proposal and get it acked on the list because this area is
very security sensitive and we do not want to jeopardize the security
and integrity of the system.
