For a distributor-run repository that is impressive, however it is worth
pointing out that as Wine releases a new snapshot every 2 weeks at present
the lag present in Extras is still significant relative to overall release
time. It'd really be better to move Wine packaging upstream for Fedora,
like we used to do. I don't see what the benefit of Extras is from the
upstream perspective, except that it's a bit more convenient for users as
they don't have to add a repo (something easily solvable with technology).
