VersionNameMap is confusing to use. One of the issues is that various VersionNameMap functions, including the constructor, take a "platform" that could either be a string that represents the OS name (e.g. High Sierra) or a PlatformInfo object. You need to read the code of each function to know what data type the function argument named "platform" should be.

Expect a PlatformInfo object to be passed for "platform":


Expect a string for "platform":


On another note, it seems weird that VersionNameMap is instantiated with a PlatformInfo for the purpose of querying the platform for the OS name and its member functions can also take an OS name to override the OS name computed in the constructor.
