Let me flesh out my remarks, above, as they relate to WINE:

WINE is in the ports tree. As such, it is a 3rd party program, and therefore, non-core to the project.

WINE has an active maintainer, who is also an OpenBSD developer. (Maintainers often are, though that is not a requirement.) The CVS logs show multiple developers committing changes in the last year.

It is my assumption, therefore, that the OpenBSD Project has developers who are interested in updating and improving the WINE port, though it is not, by definition, their core function.

If you wish to initiate and guide a discussion between those working on the OpenBSD port of WINE, and the WINE project, I would start by contacting the port maintainer. You will find her name and e-mail address in the port's Makefile.
