[New-bugs-announce] [issue35516] platform.system_alias(): add macOS support

New submission from STINNER Victor <vstinner at redhat.com>:

platform.system_alias() documentation:

   Returns ``(system, release, version)`` aliased to common marketing names used
   for some systems.  It also does some reordering of the information in some cases
   where it would otherwise cause confusion.

IMHO "macOS" and macOS release are more appropriate than darwin and darwin release for platform.system_alias().

I propose to make a similar change in system_alias() than the platform.mac_ver() change made in bpo-35344.
