Or, actually:

yum install ansible-python3 python-firewall
ansible localhost -m firewalld

(since ansible-python3 defaults to python3 for the control host/localhost)

You're right that solves the issue for the control host, assuming everything else you are doing on there is fine with py3, but doesn't solve F28 target systems. 

It is also unexpected and not in and changes notes or common issues (yet) ...

What happens to systems that currently have the library during an upgrade? 

It was just dropped from the spec (As many will be) rather than formally retired so it's not added to the "this is dead" super obsoleting package. 

Even if we don't get a change per library (which I agree would be too much) can we please get something clear for the F28 (and later F29) release ... we should be able to quickly generate it with dnf list
