The location where sudo pip3 installs modules has been changed to /usr/local/lib/pythonX.Y/site-packages, and sudo pip3 is henceforth safer to use. No other changes in user experience are expected. Sudo pip3 is not considered a standard way to install Python packages. Virtual environment and pip3 install --user should still be the prefered options. Additionally, Fedora will increase it’s compliance with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, as user-installed host-specific Python modules will now be correctly located under /usr/local.
