Is anyone monitoring Transgaming's changes to the LGPL files?

Why bother?

It's really in their best interest to keep current with Wine.

Continually resolving conflicts and fixing the same bugs we've fixed is 
a waste of their time, and monitoring their patches is a waste of our time.

The easiest thing for everybody is for original patch authors to submit 
their patches to wine-patches.  If they don't want to do that, it will 
be harder on them in the long run.
