No, I'm not talking about your concept of stability here. Maybe you 
realised that but just in case to make things clear, here I'm asking the 
maintainer to mention in his report whether the application tends to 
crash or freeze seemingly randomly (if it's a specific action that 
causes trouble it would go in the list of things that don't work).

Wine's release cycle is simply irrelevant to the Application 
Maintainer's Guide.
