Purpose of Generic folder in the Backend/OS

Just wanted to confirm the purpose of 'Generic' in OS folder for Backend modules in OCS inventory Unix Agent code (https://github.com/OCSInventory-NG/UnixAgent/tree/master/lib/Ocsinventory/Agent/Backend/OS/Generic). I think this is for the OSes which do not have been specifically defined in the OS folder to get some sort of information from them if possible.

Basically I wanted to extend some functionality for MacOS agent on my end (getting usb devices using system_profiler). I am putting this in the MacOS folder but before that just wanted to confirm the purpose of Generic folder in Backend/OS.

lib/Ocsinventory/Agent/Backend/OS/Generic folder contains common functions for Unix.

For MacOS agent put your perl script into Agent/Backend/OS/MacOS folder.
