This is, in fact, noted in the Alpha release notes. It's probably a good
idea to at least find time to read those before running the alpha :)

It also won't be an issue when updating from F10 to F11, as long as you
update F10 first (a compatible rpm was shipped as an F10 update). It'll
also be OK from Beta onwards, as you say. Only Alpha -> 11 or
non-updated 10 -> 11 via yum will be affected.
