Red Hat Release

Combiner for Red Hat Release information. It uses the results of the Uname parser and the RedhatRelease parser to determine the release major and minor version. Uname is the preferred source of data. The Red Hat Release is in obtained from the system in the form major.minor. For example, for a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 system, the release would be major = 7, minor = 2 and rhel = ‘7.2’.
