The idea of these tests surfaced as release engineering exit criteria
checkpoints during the F-11 campaign.  I've added Jesse Keating to the
cc list for some guidance here.

= QA:Testcase_Mediakit_ISO_Size =

This seems a worthwhile test that we should include.  I suspect this
test is intended to ensure the ISO media is:
      * <= 700Mib for CD iso's
      * <= 4.7Gib for DVD iso's?  <!-- needs clarification -->

= QA:Testcase_Mediakit_ISO_Checksums =

Unclear what the value of this test is.  It's straightfoward to confirm
that the ISO images posted match the provided checksums.  But it's not

= QA:Testcase_Mediakit_Repoclosure =

I believe replaces the need for an @everything package install test.
The intent is to use repoclosure to identify dependency conflicts
without having to go through the hastle of booting a CD/DVD and manually
selecting every package for install (even still the UI doesn't expose
all packages on the media kit iirc).  

I suspect this test would be easier and better to run while the compose
is being created.  I don't know if that's possible, but if so ...
perhaps we just need a place to add compose-time unit test scripts?

= QA:Testcase_Mediakit_FileConflicts =

Same as above.
