- Can you add your results to the Official Wine Appdb? Submitting your results for this software under Wine will help the many other users who run Wine.
Regularly Submitting results for installing and running on the latest version of Wine makes a big difference for others considering using Wine. By looking at how well the software runs others can be encouraged to try it themselves and together you can make progress in finding workarounds. By testing the software you will also notice when something breaks and when you make a bug report, the bugzilla team will often point it out to the person who broke it. If you are slightly more technically minded, you are able to regularly compile wine and test it before each fortnightly release then you will catch breakages before each wine release.
A big advantage of being a maintainer is that as you quickly become familiar with installing and using wine with your software, you can have a direct hand in improving wine and your software. Many times you will find very handy tips posted by others and by posting a summary many benefit from your work. When you are asked a question you don't know, simply post in the wine-users forum and perhaps someone can help.
Just by being there, you make a difference. A maintainer quickly tests each monthly release of wine, and adds to the application database a rating of how good it runs.. gold/silver/bronze or garbage. Wine is constantly being improved, and occasionally something breaks. When you do spot a breakage, file a bug in bugzilla and if you want to try and fix it you can then post to the wine-devel mailing list for advice. However, if you have a little spare time (usually about 2 hours, in between doing other things) regression testing allows you to identify which patch caused the break. By filling out a bugzilla report, posting the name of the software, and the patch which broke it to the wine-devel mailing list, the developer who broke it can have a look at fixing it.

Wine User [Jun 05] Wine 20050524: all the problems are *almost* fixed ([since] 20050419)
[...]A new image in PSP correctly draws/clears itself. Tooltips *almost* clean up after themselves, except when the tooltip's right edge goes over the drawing window's right edge, or the tooltip's bottom edge goes over the drawing window's bottom edge. In those two situations traces of the tooltip get left behind on the image canvas until the display is refreshed manually (desktop switch, dragging another window in front etc.). No problems at the top or left boundaries though, just right / bottom.
Pop-up menus behave in exactly the same way as tooltips; they get cleared OK if they're wholly within the image canvas (or overlapping top / left edges), but don't force a redraw when they're overlapping right / bottom margins of the image canvas window. The image canvas now correctly redraws itself when other X or Wine windows obscure it and then move away, or I switch desktops etc. [...] Still, looking good on the whole, so a big thanks to whoever's been messing with the redraw code lately!

[Jun 05] PSP seems to be a bit unstable (random crashes) when letting the X11 window manager manage windows. When running wine with a dedicated desktop [it appears to be stable]
Wine User [May 05]: Wine Versions prior to 20050111 handled the window creation / refresh correctly, but at 20050111 and later the window isn't being cleared upon initial creation and isn't being refreshed when the window is partially or wholly obscured by anything and then made visible again. Note that PSP drawing tools *do* work - i.e. I can draw with the pen tool say, and the window contents are updated fine. It seems to be interaction with "external" things (tooltips, other windows etc.) that has been broken. Wine Archive Link
