Thanks for taking the time to breath some life into the installation
test plan!  I've done a few minor wiki changes to the page, and added
some comments below.

I don't think all of the installer features having been proposed yet.
However, one change that might be worth considering is
It's not an official feature yet, and it may be that the cases already
outlined will cover testing of this change.  But something to consider.

I really like the 'test priority' section!  This has been missing from
previous instances.  However, the test priority is listed in both the
test plan *and* the test results template.  Would it make more sense to
just list in the test plan (fewer changes in case re-prioritization is

Also on 'test priority', I'm trying to think of a way to provide more
detail for the items listed.  For example, "Common Boot Media" ... but
we don't provide some examples for what common is.  Without having to
explicitly list *all* the test cases, would it make sense to leverage
wiki categories for this?  Perhaps categorizing relevant test cases with
something like:

 * [[Category:Installer_Fedora12_Tier1]]
 * [[Category:Installer_Fedora12_Tier2]]
 * [[Category:Installer_Fedora12_Tier3]]

Perhaps there is something simpler or more straight forward?

Perhaps the page should be moved to QA:Fedora_12_Install_Test_Plan
