Neither is correct at this point but as you note below, this isn't the
relevant part

FWIW,  just in case anyone is curious, I filed a bug report against Google
Chrome to drop the dependency on redhat-lsb package since it is a meta
package for a while and pulls in a long list of dependencies and the only
reason afaik for this dependency is to read the distribution name and
version.  os-release provides a standard location and format for this
information these days but it is confusing to have the system behave
differently from how the documentation says it should be setup and I
requested the change and it has been subsequently made (not by me).

I also independently filed a bug report to deprecate the distro specific
file but FESCo has rejected that. I don't believe that having this
information in multiple places is a good way to maintain a distribution and
we should strive to move to a single canonical location. I don't see a
reason not to add some documentation providing an advance notice of this
but whatever.
