#6345: Make signup form clearer

 Currently the signup form on WordPress.org also lets you provide details
 sch as a URL, interests, etc.

 The UX of this is that the password (required field) and interests etc
 (optional fields) all look the same, there's no indicator that one is
 required or not.

 This is made more obscure by the signup button being disabled if your
 password is not strong enough, which may reinforce the belief that these
 fields all need to be filled in, and potentially leading to dummy data
 being used.

 Marking the required field(s) during signup in some manner (asterisks
 being a well established pattern by now), and also providing users with
 guidance that the reason they can not complete signup is because their
 password is not strong enough would go a long way to improving this flow.
