Note that unlike Arch, the Fedora devs currently plan to leave "/usr/bin/ python" referring to Python 2 (see the "User Experience" part of the proposal).
The tangible changes for this are just that we're hoping to only have python3, not python2 on our default LiveCD and cloud images. This has been a bit hard since many of our core packaging tools (and the large number of release engineering, package-maintainer, distro installer, etc scripts built on top of them) were written in python2. The F22 release is hoping to have a set of C libraries for those tools with both python3 and python2 bindings. That will hopefully allow us to port the user-visible tools (installer and things present on the selected images) to python3 for F22 while leaving the release-engineering and packager-oriented scripts until a later Fedora release.
