Support for Mageia and Arch Linux was added in the platform module for Python 3.x [1, 2], but the fix was not backported to the 2.7.x branch.

It would be nice to see these fixes cherry-picked for the incoming 2.7.10 release.

Just to add some more context the function platform.linux_distribution() was removed in Python 3 with 8b94b41ab7b12f745dea744e8940631318816935. Refer for more discussion. is the recommended package for this. I am not sure if this can be added to Python 2 though.
