[Bug 516517] Drop local avatar management in favor of Gravatar

With 508862, we see some Eclipse.org services started to use Gravatar. A followup question would be what's the value of having an in-house avatar support at Eclipse.org when we could fully rely on Gravatar?
Although it makes sense to have in-house devtools that better map community processes, avatar management seems like something of low criticity and simpler to defer to an external service such as Gravatar.
Note that I think switching to Gravatar for all Eclipse.org services is only interesting if it is perceived by admins/webmasters as profitable in term of maintenance and the long run. If not, feel free to put it as WONTFIX.
