No, I meant distutils2 bugs.  I will open them when I get a minute.  You’re right that projects using metadata 1.0 or 1.1 don’t have to use a version conforming to PEP 386, and that packaging should warn when using the create and install actions and the check command, not when iterating over installed distributions.

It’s not really a distutils2 detail but a general Python thing: functions and methods have these func_name (or __name__ in Python 3) attributes, and the somewhat complicated code in distutils2.pypi uses them to do its thing.  Alexis intends to clean up that code a bit and we’ll also need more tests.  If you’re new to distutils2, I think this bug is not easy or fun enough and you would have more luck working on another one.
