 Replying to [comment:18 rhe]:
 > Currently the "stage2=" kernel parameter is not executable and supported
 (Liam reported a bug regarding it), so it's not very useful to separate
 install.img tests from install source. Therefore, my suggestion is to keep
 the old install source tests (askmethod=), and modify the Additional repo
 tests to make it use either repo= or manual repo adding method.  [[BR]]

 Good suggestion, I like this idea.

 The only addition I'd offer is including a repository test in each install
 usage scenario (boot.iso, pxe, cd, DVD, live).  This test would confirm
 that the default repository method works for each install usage scenario.
 I've also added a network-based repository test to the CD and DVD usage
 scenarios, since enabling the network on physical media installs is often

 I've updated [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Jlaska/Draft my draft to
 provide an example].  I'm not sure I have the default repository correct
 for the boot.iso (repo=http) and pxeboot (repo=mirrorlist) cases, but
 hopefully it conveys the idea.
