The Upstream URL should be the GitHub repo, not the download server.

@yochananmarqos: you were right, I will change the dependencies on this package and create another installer that includes a meta packages for that purpose

This discussion is getting rather tiresome. I have all the wine-staging optional dependencies installed and have never had to install anything else. Yet, these are the packages that would be installed on top of that if I installed your package:

Packages (20) lib32-aalib-1.4rc5-2  lib32-cdparanoia-10.2-3  lib32-gpm-1.20.7-2
              lib32-gst-plugins-base-1.16.2-1  lib32-gst-plugins-good-1.16.2-1
              lib32-libavc1394-0.5.4-2  lib32-libdv-1.0.0-5  lib32-libiec61883-1.2.0-2
              lib32-libraw1394-2.1.2-2  lib32-libshout-2.4.3-1  lib32-libvisual-0.4.0-6
              lib32-libvpx-1.8.2-1  lib32-opus-1.3.1-1  lib32-popt-1.16-7
              lib32-speex-1.2.0-2  lib32-speexdsp-1.2.0-1  lib32-taglib-1.11.1-2
              lib32-twolame-0.4.0-1  lib32-wavpack-5.2.0-1  unixodbc-2.3.7-2

What purpose do these packages serve? If you think they should be optional dependencies of wine / wine-staging, then contact the maintainers of said packages and/or file a bug report.

@yochananmarqos @redtide: the whole idea is to create a metapackage to install several dependencies of WINE and related (the same way Mint does it), I understand that this is ArchLinux and so the requirements are different, however, the idea is to install several dependencies available (either on Arch or in AUR) and to ease some of the configuration or missing dependencies process

In case any dependency might be missing, no longer be available (neither in repos or AUR) or change name, you can let me know so I can change it, remove it or do something about it

I don't get why all those unneeded dependencies for a bunch of desktop files and a menu (for this reason I created my own git version).

@Sam-Burgos: lib32-gsm & lib32-unixodbc are in the AUR. Oh, and why sane? That's for scanning.

@yochananmarqos: I would look into removing isdn4k-utils until I got my virtual machine back, because of technical issues I haven't been able to check into this before

As for the dependencies, there are some libraries not available on Arch that are on Debian and derivatives (for example lib32-unixobdc) or other that appear under a different name and I had to add them (like the now-defunct isdn4k-utils and the 32-bit library), as for the other dependencies, the idea is to leave a generic meta package wine installer that allows an almost-out-of-the-box experience with Arch users (I am also missing adding some dependencies that allows seamless reproduction of Windows programs that require ALSA instead of Pulseaudio)

As soon as I recover my VM and make some tests, I will update this package

FYI, isdn4k-utils has been removed from the core repo.

EDIT: Looking at the dependencies in the Debian control file, you're missing lib32-gsm and lib32-unixodbc. Technically you're also missing lib32-isdn4k-utils, but it's obsolete now unless someone adds isdn4k-utils to the AUR.

Why did you add lib32-gpm and lib32-gst-plugins-base as dependencies? lib32-gst-plugins-base-libs is an optional dependency of wine-staging.
