Description

The section Other built-in views is incomplete/wrong.

E.g. it says:
"views.password_reset(): Allows a user to reset their password, and sends them the new password in an e-mail." In reality, a one-use only link is created to reset the password.

The attached patch fixes this and other inconsistencies.

much of this has been addressed in #10272, however, the issue of emailing the one-time use password reset link is still undocumented so updating the patch to reflect the change that still needs to be made.
