The subject has been debated before you launched the WineAPI project on SF.
Some questions may help to understand why does nobody is interested :
+ Why a WineAPI should be needed ?
+ Who would use it ?
+ What can people using it expect to see ?

I guess he's talking about this

It says "generated automatically" but where is the script ?

Max, if you want, you can still improve the script and make it more useful.
For instance, instead of "Statistics" which give simple numbers, I think 
a link to each function in the wine source code should be great.
I have some ideas like adding a "search" feature, a link to the test 
that implement the selected function ..etc

It may be useful when you want modify a function but you don't know 
where it is.
For instance, wine_dbgstr_w() is used everywhere. But where is it defined ?
It should be a usage of the WineAPI but that's only my point of view.

Hope that helps !
