Using Bottles for Wine bug reporting

Hi, I need to know something. Since Bottles made it so easy to setup Wine related things to run Windows software it kind of makes you not have to learn Wine on it’s own. However not everything works on Wine and some programs don’t even receive bug reports and it would help in some cases.

Bug reports for Wine can be only made without use of any Wine managers from what I have read. But could the Bottles be used for that? Maybe there could be a new environment that only set ups Wine at defaults that would pass for bug reporting? Or can the “custom” environment be used and somehow have the vanilla Wine updated?

The custom env can be used for this purpose but our vaniglia runner includes staging patches, so you should find an up to date winehq standalone release and put in your runners folder to use in Bottles.
