New submission from Paul Ganssle <p.gans...@gmail.com>:
This is basically the same as issue 962772, as there seems to have been a
regression. The current version of distutils discards author= metadata if
maintainer= is present, even though PEP 345 has added the Maintainer: and
Maintainer-Email: metadata fields.
I think that the way forward is to have write_pkg_info generate separate
Maintainer: and Maintainer-Email: fields.
