 [https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/outreach/p1428608299000561 Per
 today's Community Team chat], people who contribute post production on
 WordPress.tv videos should be credited on the corresponding WPTV post.

 At the bottom of the sidebar, we should add a new section titled "Video
 Producer", and then add a link to their WordPress.org profile in that
 section. The anchor text for the link would be their full name, rather
 than their username.

 We already collect the producer's name on [http://wordpress.tv/submit-
 video/ the Submit Video form], but we'll need to start collecting their
 WordPress.org username too.

 We could have a note that we want the *individual's* name/profile, not
 their company.

 They can leave the name/username blank, but if they enter a username we
 should make sure it's a valid WordPress.org account, and prevent the form
 submission if it isn't.

 Since WPTV is hosted on WordPress.com, we'll need to submit some kind of
 request to WordPress.org to check the username. WordPress, BuddyPress, or
 api.wordpress.org might provide something. If not, we could add something
 to api.wordpress.org, or worst case just request their profile URL and
 analyize the HTTP response headers, because non-existant profiles get
 redirected to https://wordpress.org.
