After preliminary discussions with CPU vendors, we propose AVX2 as the

CPUs with AVX2].
This proposal seems mostly like an experiment in disguise to find out
whether the Fedora developers can agree on *something*, and quite
clearly the answer is yes, at least this once we can all agree to
disagree with the proposed change.
For the record, none of the ~10 computers at my house, including my
current work laptop, support AVX2. Such a change would force me to move
the entire family away from Fedora, and would be "interesting" to try
develop rpm on, say, Debian. Would make for some catchy headlines though ;)
