The Alpha criteria require only the 'use all space', 'use free space'
and 'reuse existing Linux partitions' options to work. _Anything_ which
involves using the custom partitioning screen in any way is outside
Alpha scope. See
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_16_Alpha_Release_Criteria, #11 (at
time of writing).

As I wrote, as far as the developers are concerned, 723167 is fixed in
RC4: you can see that quite easily from the bug report. So they're
probably going to need more details, if you claim that it is not fixed.
