    Remove instructions to file bugs via bug-groff.
            Patch courtesy of Dave Kemper.  His comments, massaged into GNU
            changelog format, follow.
            [The patch] also fixes a couple of trivial errors in grammar,
            punctuation, etc., that I spotted in the process[].
            * PROJECTS: Since the context of bug-groff@gnu.org in this file
            is not reporting bugs, instead of changing it to point to the
            bug tracker, I changed the address to that of the groff
            discussion list.  (However, I don't know whether this list is
            configured to accept email from nonsubscribers, so this may not
            be a viable change.)
            * README:
            * doc/webpage.ms: These files already recommended the bug tracker
            as the bug-reporting mechanism; they said using the method in
            the file BUG-REPORT was an alternative.  As BUG-REPORT also now
            points to the bug tracker, I've tweaked this wording.
            * doc/groff.texi: The address bug-groff@gnu.org was used only
            once in this file, not as an address to report bugs, but as the
            email address for Werner Lemberg.  I would take this to mean he
            doesn't want his actual email address in public documentation,
            except that it appears in many other places throughout groff
            source code and documentation alike.  So it doesn't seem
            unreasonable to put it in this file as well.  I will email him
            to confirm that this is OK. [I went ahead and removed it; we
            don't need an email address in the document, IMO. --GBR]
            * INSTALL.extra: Like README, this cited the file BUG-REPORT as
            an alternative mechanism. I removed this wording entirely.
            * BUG-REPORT:
            * contrib/groffer/README:
            * contrib/mm/README:
            * contrib/mm/m.tmac:
            * contrib/mm/mm/0.MT:
            * contrib/mm/mm/4.MT:
            * contrib/mm/mm/5.MT:
            * contrib/mm/mm/ms.cov:
            * contrib/mm/mse.tmac:
            * src/devices/xditview/README: Tweak wording and direct readers
            to Savannah bug tracker instead of bug-groff mailing list.
