Wine Releases in Ubuntu 7.10

Registered by Reinhard Tartler on 2007-05-02

This specification describes how wine will be integrated into ubuntu 7.10.

During the development of past ubuntu releases, it has become clear the release process of wine is incompatible with the way ubuntu is developed. Wine is not really released at all, but is snapshotted about every two weeks. Old snapshots are not supported by upstream. Instead, users are advised to try out the newest problem if problems arise.

After the UVF, developers have been requested an UVF exception for every wine release. In each release, a lot of bugs have been fixed, but many other things get broken. It is not determinable by the UVF team if the new version was better or worse than the old one.

We need to determine how we want to deal with wine for ubuntu 7.10
