That would be the best place to go.

Forking the Winehq tree is going to be a PITA untill they tag 0.9 They are trying to lock down
tools and options for a 0.9 and a 1.0 release but you still may have some major problems forking
until then. I know this as I have done it for a while with the ReactOS fork of the wine programs
tools and libs. If you have to fork your code because Alexandre wont take your patches then
someone needs to do a proper CVS-branch and sync it with CVSup or something like that.
