Details

OS and OS version info is currently extracted from the minidump file. If we get a zero-byte or malformed minidump file, that means we don't get any of that info. It ought to be simple enough to send that info in the annotations as well, which are sent separately. This way we'd be able to at least figure out what platforms we're getting empty or broken dumps from.

I think it probably even makes sense to send OS and OS version as two separate annotation fields to make it easier for the server side, which currently pareses them apart anyhow (and it might also make sense to send something other than the kernel version for Linux and Android there, but that's secondary).
Yeah, that's what I was thinking. For a first cut I'll probably just try to send the exact same information that is currently in the minidump.

Ted, are you still planning to do this? Or should dmajor perhaps work on this instead? We assigned the action item for this on the stability week to him, I guess he already basically volunteered for that. :)

My feelings won't be hurt if you want to keep it, though :)
I clearly haven't gotten around to it, so please do!

This hasn't really been a priority for me since we're getting far fewer empty minidumps.
