CI Build

The .travis.yaml file allows for continuous integration of doc changes on multiple branches to be published to a single gh-pages branch. When you setup the travis build job you must create the gh-pages branch if it does not already exist:

git checkout --orphan gh-pages
git rm -rf .
git commit --allow-empty -m "initializing gh-pages"
git push origin gh-pages

You will need to add an appropriate user and git api key with repo access as the environment properties GITHUB_USER and GITHUB_API_KEY respectively in the travis build settings.
