Subject: Current version of DocBook and relationship between OASIS / Doc

Hi  all,

What is the relationship between OASIS and DocBook? Both from an
organizational and specification perspective.

What is prompting this question:

claims that 5.1 is a OASIS Standard
- http://docbook.org/xml/5.1/ appears to be exist, but lacks
docbook-5.1.zip and does not say "There is a specification for this
- http://docbook.org/xml/5.0/ has the zip file and specification sentence
- http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/ shows 5.0 but not 5.1
- http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/5.0/index.xml says "<para>This
version has not been released yet.</para>"
- http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/5.0/index.xml says has an

I'd like to understand both the particulars of the above confusion and
the general relationship between the two bodies (domains?) to help
resolve future similar questions.
