Fedora 25 will have Raspberry Pi support for both the RPi2 and RPi3 as
part of Beta due in a couple of weeks.

In our builds (Fedora Minimal/Server etc editions) you'll be able to
dd the image out and boot it on either device without any changes.

Having been testing both the 2 and 3 I can easily see this. It's
fairly basic... the v2 is 900mhz quad core, the v3 is 1.2ghz with 4
cores. So that's instantly 1/3 increase.

In RPi3 news I almost fell over when the firmware made it upstream
into linux-firmware the other day! Not all the drivers are upstream
yet though. I'm going to review how terrible and how many patches are
needed to try and get it landed for F-25 GA. Time will tell....
