The most useful part of the web site is the email list archive:


As you note, the substantive work to date has been that Pierre has made 
progress (to the point of running WinMine) in porting Winelib to OS X.

My personal roadmap for Darwine-related activity is to try out the 
Winelib stuff myself and make a suitable Freshmeat announcement. 
Updating the web site a bit with some current status and some of this 
discussion is also a "to do".

I don't expect to be a development leader for any of this Wine-related 
stuff as I don't have much interest in running or porting Windows 
applications.  I certainly have no interest in debating anybody on what 
or how to do anything.  I do like communicating with others with whom I 
have a common interest.

The most interesting activity on Wine with x86 emulation is QEMU.  If 
that had existed last year then there wouldn't have been a Darwine. 
QEMU now has a mailing list:
