   I think that doing it each time Alexandre releases a new version of
Wine (about every two weeks) would even be enough... at least until we
reach 0.9. Then we would want to know about breakage during or before
the -betaX/-preX phase.
   But if you can do it weekly it's even better. It's just that I don't
want to scare other volunteers who may think we expect them to test
their applications with a new Wine every day :-)
