Privacy API update

In addition to existing requirements, any plugin which implements the plugin provider interface must also implement the \core_privacy\local\request\core_userlist_provider interface. Two new methods 
need to be implemented:


However, the two above methods are not required for plugins that implement the null_provider only (i.e. which do not store personal data).

Note that these changes are also required for latest Moodle 3.4.6 and 3.5.3 versions.
Behat scenario files

    has been deprecated and throws an exception with details on how to replace it. The recommended replacement steps work in all recent Moodle versions. The updated Behat will pass with Moodle 3.4 

Login token

If your plugin provides an alternative login form (e.g. it is a theme replacing the default login form template / renderer), the login form must include a new login token field. For details of 
required changes, see Login token. Note that this also affects latest stable branches too.
New core functions
