Update URLs for mailing lists, Evolution application page, help

2002-09-23  Aaron Weber  <aaron@ximian.com>


	* README: Update URLs for mailing lists, Evolution application
	page, help information. Remove note that Evolution is beta. In
	general, changes to the "soft" data.  Also, jeff's commit to this
	file from 2001-11-21 seems to have been lost, so I re-removed the
	stuff he took out. And changed libnspr to mozilla-nspr, and
	libnss3 to mozilla-nss.

	* data/evolution.1: Update with information about where the real
	help is. Clarify example formatting.
