Wine Contributors
Alex Pasadyn
Alex has been using Wine since the dark ages - 1994. Although, as he explained, back then it was a bit more like experimenting than actually using. Alex began submitting patches a few years ago, primarily related to low-level graphics. Alex is a custom programmer and engineering consultant but in his spare time enjoys music and running.

The enigmatic Alexandre Julliard, who has been in the project since its beginning in early 1993, has worked on and maintained the official Wine source ever since Bob Amstadt turned the helm over to him quite early. Although he enforces strict control over the official source tree (thus ensuring that every change must pass his scrutiny), nobody questions his abilities as the project leader, his commitment to quality, and his dedication to the Wine project; many 'disadvantageous' patches have been avoided by his strict quality control.

Aric Stewart
Aric Stewart lives in a small, very yellow 1 1/2 story house in snowy Minneapolis, Minnesota. Jeremy White likes to parade him around as the only Wine hacker that CodeWeavers has been able to grow from scratch, which is true. Working for CodeWeavers since his graduation from college he started working on Wine because of his employment at CodeWeavers. He has done a lot of random bug fixes and work on windows tablets for CodeWeavers, but really found his own area when he tried to use some of his Japanese programs on Wine and worked hard to get XIM and IMM32 to play nice together. When he is not hacking on Wine or answering customer support tickets, Aric studies martial arts, tries to keep his Japanese language skills from fading, watches Japanese animation, runs role playing games and LARPs, makes jewelry, hangs with friends or is out wandering around one of the lakes in town.

Vincent Povirk
Vincent likes to play with broken applications and figure out what's wrong with them, but when it comes to actually fixing the issues he tends to get distracted and move on to something else. He doesn't much care what part of the code this takes him to. He now works for CodeWeavers, which forces him to take the time to actually resolve some problems.
