#6291: Profile images need ALT attributes on Trac tickets

 Accessibility: images are missing `alt` attributes.

 1. The Reporter and Owner images are also linked, so their alternative
 text should describe the link destination. To differentiate each of these
 links from its next link (to other tickets that the reporter has opened or
 that the owner owns), this text could include "profile" after the
 2. For each comment, the profile image is part of the text link.
 Therefore, it does not need alternative text, but it still needs an empty
 `alt` attribute.
 3. The Slack/IRC notifications could have empty `alt` attributes for their
 images as well. Alternative text like "chat discussion" might add some
 value, yet these images are mainly decorative.
