           Summary: Red Hat and Fedora Core binaries are out of date
           Product: WineHQ.com
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.winehq.org/site/download-rh
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

If you take a look at RH/FC download page, you notice that binaries are out of
date. I know that it takes a lot of time and effort to maintain packages, and
maintanier sometimes doesn't have that much time, so I suggest the following:

For FC3/4/5 add a notice that "Current version of Wine is available in Fedora
Extras for Fedora Core versions 3, 4 and 5." and perhaps put a link to extras. (
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/ )
Then FC3 and FC4 binaries can be easily removed from this page, because users
will be able to install it from Extras. That gives less work to package
maintainer, so he can perhaps update older binaries a bit more frequently.
