The following commits were just pushed by equalsJeffH to https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

* Add Vagrantfile for a VM with bikeshed installed
  by Emil Lundberg

* Merge pull request #612 from emlun/vagrant-bikeshed

Tools: Add Vagrantfile for a VM with bikeshed installed
  by J.C. Jones

* Fix #609: Formally define User Handle (#616)

- Formally define User Handle
- Rename "user id" and similar terms to "user handle" everywhere
- Change name and type of `AuthenticatorAssertionResponse` field `DOMString userId` to `ArrayBuffer userHandle`
- `PublicKeyCredentialUserEntity.id` is not renamed, but it is now referred to as the "user handle"

This does not:

- Formally define the term "user account".
- Improve the privacy considerations around returning `userHandle`, as suggested in #578.
  by Emil Lundberg

* merge from master
