#2555: Slack: Update Trac bot to support threads

Comment (by RMarks):

 I took a look how this might work.  From what I have read and tested in
 another Slack workspace I have access, the new Slack incoming webhooks
 require a webhook URL to be setup per channel the app should be allowed to
 post.  Per the [[https://api.slack.com/incoming-webhooks|new docs]]:

 > You cannot override the default channel (chosen by the user who
 installed your app), username, or icon when you're using Incoming Webhooks
 to post messages. Instead, these values will always inherit from the
 associated Slack app configuration.

 Due to this limitation, for the various use cases I can see in Slack,
 there would need to be a different Slack app for each different named bot
 that would post:
 * WordPress commit
 * WordPress Trac
 * WordPress.org Meta Trac
 * etc.
