We are using DAPS (https://github.com/opensuse/daps). It's essentially
using the same chain you are using though: AsciiDoctor, DocBook XSL,
It's also not exactly cross-platform, it's quite explicitly Linux-only.
(We use Docker containers to help with cross-platformness though.)

It is not abandoned but FOP it is a project with few commits and really
does have certain issues. In our case, certain fonts and font weights
create issues for us, as do a few other layouting quirks around
monospace and such.
