Subject: Your 60 day Public Review for DocBook V5.1 Candidate OASIS Standard 01 has been announced

Members of the DocBook TC,

First, please accept my apologies for the long delay in getting your review started. I am very embarrassed that it has taken us this long. I have made changes to our publishing protocol to ensure that we don't fall this far behind again but that doesn't excuse how long you have been waiting. 

The 60 day public review for DocBook V5.1 COS01 preceding the membership vote has been announced. The review ends on November 11th. You can find the announcement at https://www.oasis-open.org/news/announcements/docbook-version-5-1-cos01-public-review-ends-nov-7th. I have also tweeted the news and posted it to the OASIS and DocBook LinkedIn groups.  

Following the review, if there are no comments or if you have comments but choose not to make changes to the specification, it will be put to the OASIS membership for the OASIS Standard vote. I will work with you in advance to organize that ballot. As of now, I expect that ballot to open on November 9th and close November 23rd. 

Please keep in mind the OASIS requirements for handling comments [1]. Non-TC member feedback can only be submitted to the TC's comment list docbook-comment@lists.oasis-open.org. The TC must have someone subscribed to this mail list to monitor comments. All submitted comments must be acknowledged by the TC. In addition, the TC needs to maintain a log of comments received and their resolutions. The comment resolution log will need to be available when you begin your next public review. A simple comment resolution log template is available in OpenDocument [2] and Office [3] format. 

Let me know if you have any questions regarding the review or next steps.
