Testing locally

This role is already configured to run on travis CI within a test playbook but it's useful to be able to run and debug a role locally which can be done via Vagrant and the ansible_local provisioner.

To run the test playbook locally within a Vagrant virtual machine:

cd tests
vagrant up --provision
