Of course.

All of your suggestions are along the lines "change the user's behavior"
rather than "adapt winehq to the user's behavior".  While all your
suggestions are fine, they don't change the fact that users are
misbehaving because the appdb doesn't allow reports with Gutsy's
version of wine.
This problem will keep happening with future releases of Ubuntu
if we cut off the version of wine too early, as we do now.

By your logic, we should not allow any reports against anything
but the latest version of wine.

Whatever.  I'm tired of discussing this with you.  If the appdb maintainers
agree with me, they'll make the change.  I don't enough to keep arguing.
