This week I have been working on porting OLE32 and SHLWAPI and it's not as
hard as it seems. I think the main problem with solution 2. is that there is
general lack of commiting patch to w32api CVS and also some developers of
ReactOS don't like checking out/compiling w32api every now and then. Despite
there are some problems with it, I vote for solution 2. if it would be
possible to solve the problem of commiting w32api patches to their CVS.
Otherwise I agree that we have to go with solution nr. 1.
One slightly off-topic question is how to use the wine2ros and winebuild
tools you commited?
