how do oce and pythonocc relate?
The basis of pythonocc is python wrapper for the oce C++ library / CAD kernel, aka pythonocc-core. pythonocc-core version number correspond to oce library releases its wrapping.
For example; the current pythonocc-core release, 0.17, requires any of the OCE 0.17.x releases. Here, the Major version name of either OCE or pythonocc-core release is 0, the Minor version is 17 and the Patch version is (optionally) x. pythonocc-core can be built with any OCE version that has a corresponding Major and Minor version number. For example, pythonocc-core 0.17 can be built with OCE-0.17.1.
