I just attempted to reproduce this with the Fedora Server 23 Beta RC1 DVD ISO image and was unable to do so. Everything worked as expected with default settings and booted to a system that was perfectly usable.
Still see this crash with Fedora-Server-23-Beta-RC1-netinst,and I'm going to upload the logs. I produce it on a VM,maybe that's the reason?

Stephen: it's a packaging issue, so DVD vs. netinst is obviously a significant difference. I'll check it with the netinst image here.
I can't reproduce this with the netinst either, though! Tried a couple of ways, but couldn't hit a crash.

I can reproduce it now. You need to go to installation source and select CD/DVD (it will complain when you go back to the main hub, but don't mind it) and then go to software selection. It will be empty and 'c' will trigger a crash.
So, just to be clear: This only happens if you boot the netinstall image and then try to select "CD/DVD" as the source media? I'm pretty sure that's not a realistic scenario.

That's how we reproduced it. Maybe there are other ways.

It's realistic to assume people make mistakes :) That's how Lili says she found it. Of course it's not proposed as a blocker.

The attachment shows another way to reproduce the crash,it seems that this version is too fragile to accept any mistaken input:(.
You are right,Kamil,there *are* other ways:)

This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
This no longer happens in F25 installer.
