Some of these patches have not been included because the are 'hacks' and break other programs.  POL/POM has a good policy of building programs into different Wine prefixes, but how are you keeping track of the different Wine builds.  (This might be a good topic for Wine Developers, not Wine Users for the time being.)

As I stated to qparis, it has been discussed here, at length, that we would rather the reports go to POL/POM and then Wine.  That way you folks will be aware of what is or is not working and the POL/POM project can consolidate Wine bug reports.  This would dimish user frustration and keep information in a proper channel.

What does qparis and you think of the application of this process?  Again, it is my opinion (and from what I've read the opinion of other Wine Developers/testers.)
