[AstroPy] Enable doctests in Astropy-affiliated packages

Hi Leo,

To enable doctests, make sure that the setup.cfg in the project's root contains 
the line:

doctest_plus = enabled

in the [pytest] section.

I'm not sure why that isn't there by default--maybe it should be.

Hope that helps,

(P.S. This sort of question is probably better suited to ask right on GitHub 
when working on the P.R., or on the astropy-dev mailing list, which is 
read/replied to by people doing active development on Astropy affiliated packages)
