Re: output of sys.platform changed
I have a python application which relies on the sys.platform output.
I noticed that on GNU/kFreeBSD, the output of sys.paltform has changed from
gnukfreebsd5 to gnukfreebsd6.
Is this intentional ?
How are the numbers calculated ?
It is derived from version number of FreeBSD kernel.
It used to be 5.3, 5.4 ,6.0 ,6.1. Currently it is 6.2.
But I don't know why is part of version number included in sys.platform.
Is there something else I should check for to find out if the platform is a
GNU/kFreeBSD box ?
The best would be to test whether sys.platform starts with "gnukfreebsd",
as gnukfreebsd7 is not so far.
