If you want, you or someone else could help by checking the Debian bugs on
the package though; I don't know which bugs have been fixed in a later
Wine release, nor did I ever get around to figure out the best way to
forward such bugs to the used-to-be-rather-unorganized way of handling
bugs (the one bug (which should be simple since it came with a patch) I
did try to forward to wine-devel a year and a half ago had still not been
resolved last time I looked). So, since I've been a little lazy about
those bugs, I've been thinking about delegating responsibility for that to
someone else, at a minimum. I haven't yet felt in need of filing a RFA or
anything yet, though... (and the most recent package is 0.0.20021031-1,
uploaded a couple of days ago)
