 install usage scenario (boot.iso, pxe, cd, DVD, live).  This test would
 confirm that the default repository method works for each install usage

 Thanks James, I see what you mean, but the current install source tests
 have already covered default repository tests.

 For [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/TestCases/InstallSourceDvd
 InstallSourceDvd], CD, live image, if one follows its steps, all the
 sources including repo should be from that disk.

 For pxeboot, if one uses askmethod= to specify an install source, both
 install.img and its default package repo would be pointed to that source.

 Boot.iso is a little unique, the common installation is to use disk
 install.img and repo=http://. So I combined
 InstallSourceBootiso] and
 Testcase Additional Http Repository] together
 in boot.iso usage scenario.

 In all, what I mean is that install source(aka askmethod=) includes
 package repository. Please correct me if I misunderstood anything.

 >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

 Yeah, agree.
