RTEMS Tester Lack of Detail on Host

First I am thrilled at the reports going to build@

It occurred to me looking at the reports I was posting that they only
say x86_64-linux-gnu. That is not enough to distinguish  distributions or
even tell the difference between something as old as CentOS 6 from a
bleeding edge Fedora or Ubuntu install.

I know you can do this on a Redhat/Centos/Fedora machine:

joel at localhost ~]$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 3.10.0-514.10.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Mar 3
00:04:05 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[joel at localhost ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)

But /etc/redhat-release is obviously far from universal.

Is there agreement that more detail on the host would be desirable? If so,
what do we need to know and how would the script gather it?
