We could have that I suppose. Then we have the issue of filling in the field
with the correct value. That would be a monstrous janitorial job with over 5000
versions to look over. http://appdb.winehq.org/appdbStats.php
We could lessen the job if we applied some smart logic to it. If we looked at
the existing test results and set "Has Installer" to "YES" if all the test
results had a Yes or No in them and Set "Has Installer" to "No" if all the test
results had N/A.
Even so what do we do about all the applications that have no test results.
Anyway this could be phased in if it is really going to be helpful.
