ISO/IEC 19757-3 Schematron is currently past the FCD stage and is 
awaiting the next FDIS stage as indicated in the up-to-date committee 
Secretariat Report that is publicly viewable at all times:

I found a bug in the 1.5 implementation w.r.t. using attributes as a 
context, so I've posted a modified version of 1.5 here:

Would that any of us could make the time to do so.

For private reasons outside the control of ISO or the private running 
of the Schematron web site, there have been unanticipated delays that 
are not related to technical decisions or even standards process.  We 
are all being patient while we await things to get back to the normal 
stride.  We recognize the anticipation out there for moving on this, 
but the delays really are unexpected and out of the control and 
influence of the internal processes.

I, too, am awaiting things to proceed (and I'm getting pressure from 
all sides in my role as SC34 Secretariat Manager) and when all is 
back to normal in this regard, announcements will be 
made.  Unfortunately this cannot be rushed.

Thanks for your patience.
