Main difference between wine-staging and winehq is that staging maintainers
are actually interested to get the patches in to fix the bugs, and they do
a lot not only to improve the patches created by somebody else, but also
actively communicate with the patch authors. winehq behaviour on that regard
is plain simple: silently reject or mark the patch as pending without any
communication effort. If you take onto account number of staging patches
and that staging maintainers do their job in their free time without getting
paid that tells quite a bit about motivation in improving wine on both sides.
