[Battlemesh] Hyperboria, Project Meshnet, MeshWith.Me.... confusing!

Hi Ted,

So Project Meshnet and Hyperboria aren't really the same thing. Finding the
differences between them are hard, but we usually refer to Project Meshnet
as a group of people looking to promote cjdns and the creation of what we
call meshlocals, groups of meshed nodes. Hyperboria is the biggest CJDNS
test network that's tunneled over the "clearnet".

Our docs that are hosted at docs.meshwith.me are hosted by a Project
Meshnet member, and not necessarily the "official" place to read those.
They're also hosted in other places, just for redundancy. They're not
hosted by Project Meshnet the entity, and as such don't use the
projectmesh.net domain.

You'll find that when it comes to Hyperboria/Project Meshnet, we often
don't do everything all together, that people pursue what they're
interested in, and as such there's a bit of fragmentation, and not
everything it together in the best way it could be.
