Operating System: Ubuntu Maverick
Version of Python: 2.6.6
Version of Distutils2: d355f123ac79

How to reproduce: Create a project bato with a setup.cfg, like this: 
name = bato
version = 1.0

$ python -m sdist
$ tar tf dist/bato-1.0.tar.gz

What happens: The archive doesn't contain the setup.cfg file.

No, because setup.cfg should always be included.  That’s a real bug.  In distutils1, test/*.py and README[.txt] were also included; the commit that changed that (374f93ab103c) introduced this bug:

-        optional = ['test/test*.py', 'setup.cfg']
-        for pattern in optional:
-            files = filter(os.path.isfile, glob(pattern))
-            if files:
-                self.filelist.extend(files)

I think setup.cfg should always be included if it exists; I’m not sure about, you may want to ask on the ML.
