That basically what i said yes but, the main reason I wanted the git Repositories was it more an acknowledge that you did do something and set a flag developer could use to help people if they wanted to.  

Please don't take this the wrong way but,

  Set a  patch that was rejected as a bug report seem to be a round about way of doing thing and a little air-i-gent to me is it not to you?    
If this is the way thing are done, why is it not listed in the doc on found on winehq  site, or was it there and I missed it.

Thank Dan you where a big help.
