Hey pluggers,

I can't seem to find a complete listing of lsb_release -a output for
linuxes that support it. The best I've found is
https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/Operations/HOWTO05 but it doesn't include debian.

So, if you're a debian user and the lsb_release _command_ is available then
please run "lsb_release -a" and paste in the output.

I'm using this to identify which dist and version of linux I'm on for a
project. At least for our supported platforms the older versions of linux
that don't support lsb aren't an issue and I don't want to mess about
checking for /etc/redhat-release /etc/blah-release ad-nausea so can't be
bothered. I'd also like to make sure we provide for ubuntu and debian users
if it's easy enough too hence this email. Ubuntu is easy (in that list and
I run it) but nada for debian...

Thanks in advance!
