[openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website] Add Factorygirl as an alternative to fixtures (#1279)

FactoryGirl is a widely used alternative to fixtures in tests. The fixtures are annoying since every time you want to test something slightly different (for example, a diary entry with an apostrophe in its title), you need to add a whole new fixture and rework the tests. Fixtures are also a pain when the model attributes change.

This PR adds FactoryGirl, and reworks two model tests (DiaryEntry and DiaryComment) to use them.
