Both .gir and .typelib files should be generated during the build
process. Check config.log for reasons why this didn't happened (if
that's the case).

In some projects maintainers have more time than in others. In
PyGObject we have right now a big lack of contributors with
consequences far worse than lack of documentation.

That said, your problem is with GStreamer, you should ask there. And
probably you aren't finding documentation because 0.11 is a
development release.

The most efficient way to make all this less painful is to contribute
documentation upstream, because that's where people expect to find it.
