Hi all,

I'm sorry to say: I retire from being active for Wine and Debian.

It's mainly because the focus of my life shifted to other things.  Maybe
that'll change again some time and I'll come back, but please don't plan
with that in mind.  I'll be available for any questions and will try to
help anyone with taking over.

Sorry to see you go! Thanks for your work on this over the years.

* Build dependencies
A few years ago we only had to make sure that unicode-data and
khronos-api were packaged in the correct version.  Nowadays there is an
increasing number of wine-specific build-dependencies like faudio, vkd3d
and more.  Also upstream changed how it builds DLLs towards PE.  I never
had a look on what that specifically means. Probably this helps with
distros retiring their 32-bit archs, and may change how we build Wine:
also build 32-bit Wine on 64-bit (?). I suggest to emphasize on building
current Wine versions, even if this means that no

FYI, the main motivation for the PE switch is to fix some DRM schemes (i.e., https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21232 et al).
