Having actually read the Oracle JDK9 EA licence, I find I (and I
suspect almost everyone) cannot comply with the terms as stated (as
opposed to the ones probably intended). I have therefore removed all my
Oracle JDK9 installs so as to be compliant.

Until Fedora Rawhide has an OpenJDK9 package, I won't be running JDK9
on that platform. Debian Experimental has an OpenJDK9 package so over
Christmas I will be installing and using that. So for now OpenJDK8
only, and hence no Gradle problems. Also no Asciidoctor problem so I
can build the documentation again.

Once I have both OpenJDK8 and OpenJDK9, I should be able to start work
on getting GPars 2.0 into a fit state for release.
