Also, from your description, this affects the case where the *server* is
running F12 alpha and clients are running something older. This
definitely doesn't fit into the alpha criteria :)

the criteria we mostly use to evaluate alpha blockers are the same as
the criteria on which the critical path proposal is based: bugs which
stop you being able to boot the system and update it graphically are
blockers. So if you can't boot the system, can't start X, can't do any
input, or networking is broken - those are potentially critical issues
(though they may not count if they only affect some specific piece of
hardware). There's wiggle room, obviously - this is something it's hard
to write down really definitively - but I think most of QA / releng
would agree that an issue which affects the use of the system as an NFS
server won't block the alpha release.
