Require gcc > 5
Required gcc version was updated to 5.1 for C++14 support. Is it too harsh to update the requirement to 6+ only a year later?
Note that supported distributions that ship with gcc < 6 will likely have gcc >= 6 packages available already. See, for instance, https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-toolchain-r/+archive/ubuntu/test
Fix multisim with parallel simulation
mdrun -multisim with more than one rank per simulation would stop
with a fatal error due to using a partially initialized
gmx_multisim_t in GpuTaskAssignmentsBuilder::build().

Would it make sense to skip GCC 6 and directly require GCC 7 in a year or two? That then would allow us to switch to C++17. AFAIK, all other (CPU) compiler would allow us to switch to C++17 already now.
That sounds like reasonable timing and good justification.
I will update #3047 with this proposal and remove it as a parent issue.
How do we create new "Target version" milestones? It wouldn't hurt to have 2022-infrastructure-stable to tracl things that are definitely planned but definitely deferred. Otherwise, should this issue be targeted to null or to "future"?
