My question is first: what information is possibly relevant or
helpful here?

I thought that the main purpose of emacs-version was to distinguish
the different (historical) versions of emacs. During the pretest of
a particular emacs version, this might not provide too much variety.

I guess under GNU linux the most basic information about the build
platform is provided by "lsb_release -d". report-emacs-bug includes
the output of this command.

But again: I don't know what is possibly most useful during a pretest.
