[New-bugs-announce] [issue25607] test_distutils provokes unexpected output in test_shutil

New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

test_distutils changes global logging level for distutils. This affects test_shutil.

In Python 2.7:

$ ./python -m test.regrtest test_distutils test_shutil
[1/2] test_distutils
[2/2] test_shutil
test test_shutil produced unexpected output:
zip -q -r archive2.zip dist

1 test OK.
1 test failed:

Python 3 testing is more lenient, but produces unexpected output too.

The global logging level is changed in Distribution.parse_command_line() by calling log.set_verbosity().

Proposed patch restores the value of the global logging level in tests that change it.
