In addition to this, the packaging team’s policy has traditionally been to
upload all Wine releases, since support for applications can vary from one
version to another; this ensures that users can find whatever version they
need, packaged, from Debian snapshots. The uploads are usually cadenced with
migrations to testing; 4.3-2 migrated to testing last Wednesday, and Michael
uploaded 4.4-1 on the same day. So it will take a few weeks before the
development releases are caught up in Debian.
