As all the feedback in the meeting this morning was positive, and
viking-ice didn't raise any objections when I asked him about it, I've
gone ahead and just done this - created the f21 installation results


and put the new image sanity matrix in at the top, taking the image
sanity tests out from everywhere else they existed. I put my draft
checksum test case into production as
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Mediakit_Checksums - Andre,
if you see anything wrong, yell, or just go ahead and fix it! - and
threw some ARM and cloud target sizes into
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Mediakit_ISO_Size . I also
tweaked the colors of the section headings while I was in there, so none
of them are duplicated and USB isn't grey any more :)

Yell if anyone sees anything wrong - this stuff won't be used in anger
until we hit F21 Alpha testing, and may need more revision for the
fedora.next stuff, so it's not very urgent. I just wanted to make sure I
didn't forget about it and wind up never pushing it out.
