[New-bugs-announce] [issue28167] remove platform.linux_distribution()

New submission from Matthias Klose:

platform.linux_distribution() was deprecated in 3.5, and should be removed.

Can't be kept up to date, see #18872, #19213, #20454, #1180267, plus uncounted issues closed as won't fix.

I'm surprised that #26041 removed the removal warnings again after such a long discussion.
