Pablo, I would like to get mediation from the release manager.

I want to add an interface to the os-release file. It's a decade-old standard from The file is available in the minimal base installation of virtually every Linux distributions except for Android. It's in Alpine, Arch Linux, Debian family (Mint, Raspberry Pi OS, Ubuntu, ...), Fedora family (CentOS, RHEL, ...), Gentoo, SUSE, and many more. The os-release file contains human readable and machine readable operating system information. The file format is simple but not trivial.

Matthias and Marc-Andre oppose my patch. Victor and I are in favor of the new feature.
