I have recently been inundated with package announcements for Fedora 22, 23, and 24. Apparently my email is on these distribution lists, and I cannot work out how to unsubscribe. None of the login credentials I have saved seems to work, and I cannot find a "retrieve lost password" function, so I cannot remove my email from these distribution lists.

Advice about any next steps will be greatly appreciated.

Package announcements are not from a mailing list. It's the notification system, try

Thanks for the info about where to find the password reset function. Once I did all this, I find that both my email and IRC channels of notification are disabled; yet my inbox runneth over; I think I have received about 300 Fedora 22, 23, and 24 update messages in the last week. So how else should I try to stem this tide?

I would say you are subscribed to some mailing list. https://lists.fedoraproject.org
