What will be the upgrade path this time ? fedup ? fedora-upgrade ? yum ?

What's the upgrade path for someone who wants to test this alpha ?

All three are possible but fedup remains the recommended method. If you want to test the alpha, you should do a fresh installation but fedup is possible as well.

Just FYI, fedora-upgrade is just a bash script that calls yum.

FYI, I'm getting broken dependencies when trying to do a yum upgrade on my F18 machine related to nss and alsa-lib. The GHC, Qt, and GTK stacks all seem to be blocked on these.

Seems some things are held up by the freezes and F18 is ahead of F19 for some key packages (low-level perl packages, autofs, and wpa_supplicant). A distro-sync let things move forward again.
