When I join to relay to help netizens, I notice that
my PC's OS type(ex. Linux, BSD, Win) and it's version
are make to public.

In Apache, I can hide my PC's information by set
"ServerToken Prod" flag. Why not Tor?

Please add something like:
RelayAnnounceExtraInfo 0 (1 is default)

See the debate at #2988.

We definitely want you to say your version, since we use that for all sorts of statistics and for clients to use or not use your relay depending on its capabilities.

The platform is mostly just there for statistics. We could get rid of it I guess. I am not excited to though. I think we hit a reasonable balance in #2988.
