If you would like to submit a version please do so.  In your case you 
submitted an entire application that was a duplicate, and when I rejected it 
the version submission implicitly created when submitting an application was 
also deleted.  If there was a particular place that was confusing please 
mention it, we want to ensure that the appdb documentation is as clear as 

Do we even need to have the retail version of CS in appdb?  Nearly all CS 
servers upgrade when new versions come out as bugs and exploits are fixed in 
older versions.  I don't think we want to list every version that CS has ever 
released, this means we would have a forum, description and an entry for each 
CS release?  That seems like a bit much.  Typically we bundle similar 
versions together.  If you would like to add specific testing results for the 
retail version I think you should do so in the existing Counter-Strike 
version entry.  A common method is a table similar to that in the version 
template where the first column is the version of CS, the second the version 
of wine and the rest like the normal testing table.
