Matt Sicker commented on LOG4J2-1802:

Ok, seems like AsciiDoc macros are not what I was expecting. They're not really 
for dynamic things like some of the velocity macros I was using in the 
{{maven-dependencies.md.vm}} template. There is [an open 
issue|https://github.com/asciidoctor/asciidoctor-maven-plugin/issues/299] to 
add Velocity support to the AsciiDoc plugin when used like this. For now, I'll 
leave this file in markdown.

>            Priority: Major
> The xdoc system currently in place is difficult to use correctly (it expects 
> proper XHTML, no block level elements inside inline level elements, the usual 
> pedantry from an XHTML/XML validator) and is needlessly verbose for writing 
> documentation.
> After experimenting with Markdown as an alternative to xdoc, it has not been 
> powerful enough for our uses. AsciiDoc, however, does offer more features 
> useful here without extending the markdown processor itself. This will also 
> help unify documentation formats used in other Log4j projects.
