There was one additional change made to the wiki that wasn't previously
discussed.  I removed the Beta criteria "The installer must be able to
use the CD and DVD local package source options".  Since we no longer
provide CD images, and the DVD package repo is handled in the Alpha,
this is no longer required.

I've migrated the changes into the Fedora 16 release criteria pages.

      * Alpha -
      * Beta -
      * Final -
