Package: playonlinux
Version: 4.0.14-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
*** Please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * tried to use screen cap was told to I needed curl
   * installed curl and it worked
would make sense to have curl as a dependecy as this package

*** End of the template - remove these lines ***
