config doesn't define skipsdist #683

I just noticed that tox/doc/config.rst mentions that skipsdist defaults to false, but it doesn't actually say what it does.

I'm sure to an experienced python developer they'd understand that it skips the step where tox runs a / sdist And the tox/doc/example/general.rst file, in the 'Avoiding expensive sdist' section spells this out.

But as someone that just googled straight into the tox/doc/config.rst page, this wasn't immediately clear to me. Some of the other global settings are defined at the bottom of this section. Perhaps all of them should be. I also noticed that skip_missing_interpreters was defined, but missing from the list of global options.

I think in general, the section on global options could do on expansion similar to the virtualenv test environment settings so that each option has its own heading. I'll have a look later

This is still in progress: quite a few descriptions to write.
