Addresses #243

…b Actions


* The docs section 'Github Actions Gotcha' stated that the COVERALLS_FLAG_NAME
  env var is needed in order to avoid 'pile up of jobs'. It turns out that
  it is optional, and when specified, can be specified with the same value
  across all jobs or with unique values.
  This change clarifies that in the documentation.

* This change also clarifies that the COVERALLS_REPO_TOKEN env var is not needed
  for GitHub Actions.

* This change also renames the heading of the section to 'Github Actions support'
  to have a more neutral name.

@andy-maier thanks for the contribution, and I appreciate you helping to clean things up here. As you mentioned in #243, I think it would be useful to mention something about the "piling up" of jobs, even if it's not something we can fix. Could you include something to that effect here, to make sure users know that is expected?

Merging as this is a net improvement, but would love if you (@andy-maier ) had more info to add on the "piling up jobs" thing!
