It is using b"\n" newline instead of b"\r\n".

I think this is a duplicate, could you search existing bugs?

But given issue33071 , is this still relevant?

Yes, I think it's relevant,

"not require register anymore, although other package indexes might"

This means other package indexes are required to be able to parse this HTTP. That's not good and has lead to workarounds (chishop for example= which might change the long-description in the body.
And it seems like the command hasn't changed since I developed the patch (around 10 months ago).

Distutils is now deprecated (see PEP 632) and all tagged issues are being closed. From now until removal, only release blocking issues will be considered for distutils.

If this issue does not relate to distutils, please remove the component and reopen it. If you believe it still requires a fix, most likely the issue should be re-reported at
