             Bug #: 11440
           Summary: ToolChains has hardcoded linux distribution codename
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Driver
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

Dear developers,

I would like to discuss with you some solution to take away hardcoded codenames
in ToolChains.cpp.

For example, Debian and (in particular) Ubuntu need to patch and add
by-their-hands Distro names in the code every release.

Ubuntu needs upgrade patch every six months.

My question is: does exist another way in which ToolChains.cpp should be
"written" or "conceived" in order to simplify this process?

In this discussion Anders Kaseorg explains the problem very well:
