RPMforge provides stable wine (1.0) packages in the normal repositories. 
And we also provide test packages (1.1) from the test repositories.

In this case I only have 1.1.9 releases available from the test repository 
because Wine does not announce new unstable releases on freshmeat. So 
there is no practical way to monitor new releases. (We have more than 4000 
packages, we cannot monitor individual mailinglists)

(In fact the latest stable release on freshmeat is 1.0, and not 1.0.1 :-/)

I am a firm believer to let upstream decide what is stable and is 
unstable because they know much better. I often advice people asking me to 
make available an unstable release in RPMforge to discuss with upstream to 
see whether they can stabilize their unstable tree.

That said, I am building 1.1.10 packages right now but they will only 
become available on saturday since I will miss the deadline for tomorrow. 
Wine packages take a long time to build (often need 2 passes).
