Thanks for the update on the issue. So far no issues have been reported for Fedora after
the inclusion of the patch (which got included in F26 alpha as well).

Subject: Status update for PEP 538 (coercing the legacy C locale to C.UTF-8)
The Fedora 26 Alpha currently includes our downstream patch
backporting PEP 538 to Python 3.6 - an update to CPython to implicitly
coerce the legacy C locale to C.UTF-8 as the Python interpreter
process starts up.
I'm still aiming to have that PEP officially accepted for 3.7 upstream
before the F26 beta deadline (currently May 16th), but hit a slight
hitch recently when Barry Warsaw had to withdraw as BDFL-Delegate due
to a lack of sufficient time to devote to the review process.
Fortunately, Naoki Inada has agreed to take over the role, and Guido
signed off on the updated delegation today:
So with any luck, we should be able to get this change explicitly
approved by upstream within the next couple of weeks.
