There was a discussion about this a year ago--this is the start of the
sub-thread:
https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice-qa/2015-February/008509.html
.

I will add that it has never been our intention to build a single
monolithic block of code--what we envisioned was a family of independent
libraries using the same framework (librevenge). We wanted others to
scratch their own itch, start their own libraries; to work with us, not
for us. So independent release of libraries is a feature, not a bug.
(There are exceptions: if a change in a library requires a change in
librevenge or libodfgen, we synchronize the releases.)
