DocKnot 3.04

This is a relatively small feature release of my tool for managing software documentation and releases.

I'm slowly moving all of my packages from Travis-CI to GitHub Workflows for automated CI. GitHub Workflows is much easier to configure and control, and I've been a bit worried about the future of Travis-CI since their acquisition. It seems unlikely that GitHub Workflows is going anywhere.

It would be nice to use a fully free software solution for CI, but there doesn't seem to be anything out there that's nearly as easy and straightforward to use, and I have neither the time nor the energy to cobble something together myself. The configuration is fairly straightforward and should be portable to any fully free solution that might materialize in the future.

Anyway, as part of that migration I needed to make some changes to DocKnot to generate status badges from GitHub Workflows instead of Travis-CI. This release includes those changes. There is a backward-incompatible change to make the semantics of the package metadata a bit more straightforward: vcs.travis needs to be changed to vcs.status.travis.

You can get the latest release from the DocKnot distribution page. Debian packages have been uploaded to my personal repository. I plan on uploading DocKnot to Debian proper once I change the metadata format to use YAML instead of relaxed JSON.
