Package: wine
Version: 1.8-6
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

>From all I can tell, the Gecko integration is entirely broken. There is no wine-gecko packaged in Debian
(the recommendation of libwine-gecko-2.40 is unsatisfiable), no download window appears to fetch wine-gecko
from the WineHQ servers instead, and even if I do that manually and put the msi files into
/usr/share/wine/gecko, wine does not even bother to install them. The docs (confusingly) say I should
put the file into /usr/share/wine-development/gecko, but that does not work either.

This breaks each and every windows application that needs the embedded browser.

Pleaswe make it possible to use gecko with the wine packages.

Kind regards,
