CodeWeavers has announced the
Wine Installer Challenge
"We are on a mission to improve Wine until it can run nearly every Windows program, and we would like your help.
Over the past year we've completed support for a set of technologies key to making Windows applications install: the Component Object Model (COM aka OLE) DLLs and the Microsoft Installer service (MSI). That work is now largely done, and we would like to start taking advantage of it to showcase what Wine can do.
The basic idea is that if you send us a piece of software, we will commit to making it install. In exchange, we need you to promise to run a regression test of that installation, thereby insuring that it continues to install into the future.
