On that note, the older Win title need to be cataloged along with
admin/tech notes on what it takes to make them run under wine. Will need
to track data such as wine version, Linux distro version and release.
Basically the same thing that wine does now in the database of apps. Or
better, just use a link back to that database section on the wine site
and just list the titles and some notes on SchoolForge.
