This is implemented as a "self-service user password change" on the v2
public API. The user is required to have a token for the password they are
changing, and is required to know the original password before a new one
can be set.

There is a similar "administrative password reset" call on the v2 admin API
(contrib.admin_crud) which does not require the original password:

> Hi Keystone-team,
> TL;DR:
>   Keystone v2 API supports PATCH on '/OS-KSCRUD/users/{user_id}',
>   What should we name the operation for?
> We are adding the api-site link to Tempest docstring for explaining

> This work comes from previous discussion on openstack-dev[1].
> We can find problems on Tempest and the api-site and solve them, that

> During this work[2], we are facing a problem difficult to distinguish
> what title is the best for OS-KSCRUD extension on Keystone v2 API.
> Keystone v2 API provides an API on "OS-KSCRUD/users/<user-id>" with PATCH.
> That seems "Update user" from REST design, but according to the
> following Keystone implementation, that seems "Set user password".
