[pkg-wine-party] Sponsor request for icoutils 0.31.2-1.1 (NMU)

Hi Wine Party,

I've uploaded an NMU of icoutils to mentors, which is available at

Although icoutils is not a package maintained by the Wine Party, it is
one of the core dependencies of gnome-exe-thumbnailer. Recently,
icoutils 0.31.2 had a regression that completely broke the portion that
the thumbnailer uses to extract icons: namely, the wrestool program.
Without the ability to extract icons, gnome-exe-thumbnailer in stretch /
unstable can only generate generic, app filename-based icons which are
of little use.

The icoutils bug is a couple months old and has severity 'important':
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=860220. Given that the
stretch upload deadline is coming up very soon (2017-06-09) and that the
maintainer Colin Watson (CC'd) has agreed to
https://wiki.debian.org/LowThresholdNmu, I believe this upload is
worthwhile and meets the Stretch unblock criteria.

The full changelog is as follows:

icoutils (0.31.2-1.1) unstable; urgency=high

  * Non-maintainer upload.
  * Add patch fix-wrestool.patch from upstream commit

    to fix wrestool not extracting icons - this is a regression from 0.31.2.
    Closes: #860220
