New submission from Christian Heimes:

#1322 has deprecated platform.linux_distribution(). The feature is going to be 
removed without replacement functions in the stdlib. It's no longer possible to 
detect the Linux distribution from stdlib. Let's add a function to read 
/etc/os-release [1] instead. It's a very simple format and pretty standard for 
many years.
