Right now when you are viewing a list of Docs you need to hover over the description to see the links to read|edit|history|delete

The problem is that these links don't work on at least the iPad and possibly (probably?) on other touch devices.

This problem is related to #2837 and is because the CSS uses :hover to expose those links and that causes problems for touch.

Until we devise a more general solution to the problem, I propose a short term solution where we remove the visibility:hidden; rule on line 73 in bp-docs.css and show the links all of the time. This means we can also comment out lines 85-87 that make .row-actions visible.

Once we figure out a more general approach to hover we could revisit this.
