Fedora 23 is also planning on having Fedora internal Python programs
default to 3 as well[1].

In Fedora's case however, it is still following the recommendation in PEP
394[2] that "python" still run python2, so it's not as drastic a change as
Ubuntu, who is proposing (like ArchLinux) to make "python" point to python3
and not include python2 at all in the default install.
