MagicAndWires [1] filed a deletion request for wine-valve [2]:

This was meant to be a stable release alternative to the `wine-valve-
git` package, to be used in conjunction with the `proton` package.

As it turns out though, new proton releases require development wine-
valve code that isn't yet released as a stable release.

This makes using the wine-valve-git package a requirement if you want
to keep proton up to date, and this "stable" package neither stable
nor up-to-date.

I was on the fence on whether to orphan, rather than delete, this
package but it'd only provide users the chance to install the wrong
package by accident.
