#441: Capture the WordPress.org Usernames of WordCamp Attendees

 We need to capture the WordPress.org usernames of WordCamp attendees so
 that we can incorporate that data on profiles.wordpress.org.

 I've started work on this by creating a CampTix addon that requires the
 user to login before purchasing a ticket. Since WordCamp.org shares a user
 table with WordPress.org, that will get us their username.

 It's been a few weeks since I had time to work on it, but IIRC the login
 workflow is working, but may need some finishing touches.

 After that, we needs to store the username in the attendee meta, and then
 we need to update
 /wp-content/plugins/wordcamp-participation-notifier the notifier] to push
 that to profiles.wordpress.org, and
 /wp-content/plugins/wporg-profiles-activity-handler the activity handler]
 to accept it. Storing the wporg username in attendee meta will eventually
 happen in the private `camptix-extras` plugin, but it can be built into
 the addon for now and I'll migrate it before deploying.

 We also need to improve the notice on the login page to help users
 understand that they need to login with their WordPress.org username, and
 help them create one if necessary. Without this, many will be confused and
 try to login with the credientials from their self-hosted site.

 @jenmylo, can you fill in any details that I missed?
