Before I start compiling I would like to know if the gstreamer packages
for 11.0 are up to date and if I could use them in 10.3.

Generally, it is not a good idea to use another version.

Okay, good point. But if I compare the versions of 10.3 and factory those of
the factory are newer. Can or should I work with factory? Where stands the
term factory for?

A factory is a place you find unfinished goods that will eventually be
finished and shipped to customers.

Suse has chosen to use the phrase to describe their packages that have
not yet been through a serious testing and finishing effort.

I assume at a point like this, close to 11.0's release, the factory
stuff is close to finished and ready to ship. Indeed many packages
may be shippable by now, but shortly after 11.0's release the factory
will get updated with all the latest packages and the finishing
process will start again.

The various alpha's, beta's, rc's get pulled from the factory so that
everyone doing testing etc is working with the same set of rpms, but
if you want the absolute latest rpm for a given package, then the
factory is the place to get it.
