#6793: Link Slack username to user DMs

 As Slack has moved away from usernames, if multiple users have the same
 name it can be difficult determining which user is linked to which
 WordPress.org profile. For example searching the user "John" shows
 multiple accounts with the same details.

 On WordPress.org profiles, it would be handy if the Slack username could
 be linked to the user's DMs. The URL form is
 `https://wordpress.slack.com/messages/C024MFP4Q/team/<user id>`.

 This came up recently when I needed to DM a number of people in a certain
 channel and had trouble figuring out who was who in a couple of cases.

 The one risk I see is that it may increase Slack spam.
