 Improve the HelpScout widget that displays information about plugins in
 the sidebar, adding a link and the slug of the plugin.

 This would make the team more efficient during reviews and in responding
 to email inquiries.

 In the widget, for each plugin shown, after the name of the plugin and the
 "#" link (that goes to the public page of the plugin):

 * Add a direct link to download the current version of the plugin (.zip
  * The symbol would be ↆ (U+2186 / ↆ / \2186)
  * Also show last updated relative date, as a short version: “6 days ago”
 would be “6d” / “1 month ago”, “1m” / “1 year ago”, “1y”
 * Add, in a new line, the slug of the plugin. Without any link, so it can
 be easily copied. Also, being on a new line makes it easier to spot the

 The plugin status information will continue to be displayed after this.
