More jitsi meet config cleanups

This removes an unused letsencrypt dir bind mount for jitsi-meet web
that was causing confusion (we run letsencrypt out of band and put the
certs in the correct dir so we don't need this specific bind mount).

We also remove the now unused config.js config file from the role.

We stop managing the default nginx config and instead rely on the
container provided template. To properly configure http redirects we
set the ENABLE_HTTP_REDIRECT flag in the env var file.

Finally we update the README file with a bit more info on how this all

Install, configure, and run jitsi-meet.
Note that the Jitsi Meet docker images supply template files in /defaults
on the image. These template files are used to generate configs in /config
on the image (/var/jitsi-meet on the host) using the docker-compose .env
file and its vars.
If we need to make changes to the configs we need to bind mount in a
modified template file so that the config file generation produces what we
expect. If we try to write the configs files ourselves then when jitsi
meet restarts we will lose those configs until the next ansible run.
