Why multilib "Winetricks" is still outdated?

arch’s package is uptodate winetricks-20201206-1-x86_64
manjaro’s multilib is outdated even in testing winetricks-20200412-1-x86_64

so I upgraded from arch’s repo.
warning: winetricks: local (20201206-1) is newer than multilib (20200412-1)

How do I suggest a package update in testing?


Stable : 20200412-1
Testing : 20200412-1
Unstable : 20201206-1

Thanks for your response. Is there a way to mark a package in “unstable” for release? Or vote a package as stable?

That’s not the way it works. You can either switch to the testing branch or wait for the next stable update.

I don’t recommend installing packages directly from Arch, but in this case doing so with winetricks is fine.

I would like to contribute to testing so I’m switching to the testing branch. Manjaro gave a lot to me, and it’s time to give something back. Is there documentation on this?

What I mean is, I will continue to submit bug reports as always but how does the “ok this package is good” works.

Normally they are reported in the Testing Update Release threads.
(through both the release poll and individual responses where necessary)
Though I suppose from time to time a new thread may be warranted for something specific.

I’ll also just leave this here:

latest winetricks release updated 13 days ago
Manjaro bumped it from Unstable to Testing yesterday

Amazing, truly amazing. Thanks for all the info on branches and timelines.
