Plugin dir: changes to author profile name not reflected on plugin page

Description

When a plugin author changes the name or display name in their WordPress.org user profile, plugin pages continue to display the old name in the byline.

Expected: the plugin directory theme should always pull the current author name from the user profile.

The "By xyz" author byline is pulled from the plugins plugin file directly, for example see Line 10 of the Hello Dolly plugin.
