Both packages are made by me.  The intent is for the each Wine version
shipped with Ubuntu to have no regressions relative to the previous Wine
version shipped with Ubuntu.  This is something I can't guarantee using
the biweekly Wine releases, however people still want the latest Wine,
so I make it available there.
