That's mostly because we don't really know.  Last I checked the plan was
to continue with 0.10.x and the current API and ABI as long as it makes
sense to do so.

Because they are released at different times with varying frequency
(e.g. core+base are released much more often than, say, gst-plugins-bad
or gst-ffmpeg).

Just get the latest release of each module. Gaps in the version number
would be confusing too IMHO.
