Won't that get troublesome though?
I mean, someone tests it with i686, core, automatic partitioning and it
works, but then someone tests it with i686, net, automatic partioning and
it doesn't. At this point i686 will have worked, core will have worked
and automatic partitioning will have worked, but only net won't have.
But then someone might test it with x86_64 and that does work (ok so
maybe using the core/net difference might be a bad idea? sorry) then net
will have worked too, but not on i686 which might not be apparent from
this data.
Or am I just being picky?
