You can also do free form testing to exercise the package-related functions of the installer as much as possible: try different things in the '''INSTALLATION SOURCE''' and '''SOFTWARE SELECTION''' screens, and exercise the kickstart directives relating to repositories and package sets. Please add results to the [[#table|table below]]. Here are some ideas for exploratory testing from the installer developers:

You can also do free form testing to exercise the package-related functions of the installer as much as possible: try different things in the '''INSTALLATION SOURCE''' and '''SOFTWARE SELECTION''' screens, and exercise the kickstart directives relating to repositories and package sets. Please add results to the [[#table|table below]].
 
 
* Try all environments (left-hand side choices) in '''SOFTWARE SELECTION''', with add-ons (right-hand side choices) left default: note dependency issues may be bugs in packages, not in anaconda or DNF, check the Rawhide Report emails to see
 
* Try ''Basic Desktop'', ''Minimal Install'' or ''KDE Plasma Workspaces'' environment and select all add-ons
 
* Test installation with the {{filename|/root/anaconda-ks.cfg}} file generated by any interactive install (e.g. those above), ensure it works and reproduces the same install options
 
* Test various options for {{code|%packages}}: {{code|--nocore}}, {{code|--multilib}}, {{code|--default}}, {{code|--nobase}}, {{code|<nowiki>--instLangs=LIST</nowiki>}}
 
* Test various options for {{code|@group}} definitions: {{code|--nodefaults}}, {{code|--optional}}
 
* Test various special entries in {{code|%packages}} sections:
 
*: {{code|*}} - all packages
 
*: {{code|-@group}} - exclude group
 
*: {{code|cloud*}} - wildcard package match
 
*: {{code|-cloud*}} - exclude wildcard package match
 
*: {{code|-kernel}} - exclude kernel (should work, with kernel-core)
 
*: {{code|-kernel*}} - exclude kernels (???)
