Which modules exactly? RST library? Most of files in that library is linked 
from 5.0.

In other words: "Stop 5.1 development! We have to wait until 5.1 is stable."
Only vector modules are uploaded to 5.1, everything other is linked from 5.0.

I understand, that people using rasters only don't need 5.1, and their 
life would be easier without 5.1, but to do something with vectors in 5.0
is realy problem, waiting hours for v.support, then get
WARNING: line xxxx label: xxxx matched another label: xxxx.,
create new vector for each attribute in shapefile, etc.
