Overall, this looks sensible.  I didn't spot anything questionable
other than a minor style nit, i.e. write these

    make doc USE_ASCIIDOCTOR=1
    make -j2 doc USE_ASCIIDOCTOR=1

more like this

    make USE_ASCIIDOCTOR=1 doc
    make -j2 USE_ASCIIDOCTOR=1 doc

Having said that, I wonder if we get some interesting results out of
building the documentation twice, though.  By looking at the Travis
log with timestamps, we probably can see how long each build takes,
but that is much less interesting than learning if new versions of
text used mark-up that does not format correctly on one or the other
(i.e. catch documentation breakage early in each CI run), for
example.  I have an impression that neither AsciiDoc nor AsciiDoctor
"fails" in an obvious way that "make" can notice (i.e. they often
just silently produce nonsense output when fed a malformed input
