I just looked at wine staging git.

It is basically a Wine fork already.

ls patches/|wc -l
ls patches/*/00*|wc -l

This includes some larger rewrites of subsystems, e.g. wininet-Cleanup

Some form of coordinated effort should probably be done to integrate
things back to wine.

Also, I sent two more or less trivial fixes towards wine-patches, I would
really encourage to send more obvious things directly to Wine itself.

Ciao, Marcus
