Thanks for the feedback. I've gone ahead and implemented this now, as 
we're getting close to Branch point and I want to make sure the 
criteria are in shape ahead of time.

I moved the template page to:


and the Domain controller requirements page to:


I updated the criteria as proposed. I also moved the 'role definition 
requirements' criterion to Alpha, as I believe that's where it was 
meant to be, and we only put it at Beta for F21 because we weren't 
actually done by Alpha.

I also created a template for test cases that are 'associated' with 
role requirements, the same way we have a template for test cases that 
are 'associated' with release criteria, and updated the relevant test 
cases to use it. You use it like this:

{{Template:Associated_server_role_requirements|Domain controller}}

and it generates an admon box like the one at the top of this page:


The argument makes the assumption that 'role requirements' pages will 
always be named:

ROLENAME role requirements

and you pass ROLENAME as the template argument. (mediawiki treats 
underscores and spaces as identical, so I'd recommend using spaces to 
make the text look nicer - 'Domain controller role requirements' looks 
nicer than 'Domain_controller_role_requirements'). So we should carry 
on with that scheme, or if we want to change it, the template will 
need changing too (and the Domain_controller_role_requirements page 
would have to be renamed, of course).
