Wine 2.0.5 - older but good (Xenial)

PPA description

New build of Wine 2.0.5 (from official WineHQ source) for Xenial only.

Wine 2.x can be more reliable for certain situations, such as running XP (and earlier) software. Based on personal experience and particular programs used by me, XP (and earlier) software can (sometimes) be buggier on newer Wine versions (ie. Wine 3.x and 4.x). An official build of Wine 2.0.5 was never created by WineHQ, with their final 2.x build being 2.0.4 (and 2.0.5 source was released months later on 18/3/2018). So here's an unofficial build of Wine 2.0.5 for Xenial users (may work on newer series too, though untested).

*** Technical Details ***

This build was created from official WineHQ 2.0.5 source code and official WineHQ 3.0.5 package code (ie. "debian" folder and its contents, used in "proper" package creation for Debian/Ubuntu systems). Minor changes were made to package code -- ie. set debian/source/format to "3.0 (quilt)" -- with zero changes/patches applied to the source code (ie. anything outside "debian").
