True, the GStreamer SDK is not part of the GStreamer project, but it is
definitely related to the GStreamer team. Remember that the SDK is a
product of Collabora and Fluendo. Let's look at the top 10 contributors
(most commits in past 12 months) to GStreamer courtesy of [1],
and who their employer is, based on committing email address:

Wim Taymans (Collabora, co-founder)
Sebastian Dröge (Collabora since 2008)
Tim-Philipp Müller (Collabora)
Mark Nauwelaerts (Collabora)
Vincent Penquerc'h (Collabora)
Edward Hervey (Collabora)
Thibault Saunier (Collabora)
Stefan Sauer (Google, but seems to contribute as a hobby)
Reynaldo H. Verdejo Pinochet (Collabora)
Thiago Santos (Collabora)
