For the sys.build_info, I opened #12794 (platform.major()) but then quickly closed it because it was only useful if the issue #12795 (Remove the major version from sys.platform) was accepted, but I closed it.

The changeset b072e1559d6b (sys.platform is now always 'linux') closes this issue because it solves the initial problem. Did you notice how trivial is the final patch? ;-)

This funny issue is closed, we can now work again on real bugs :-)
