doc-files should break files up into multiple lines, as per RPM expectation

when using %doc section of the RPM spec, it expects multiple files
to be listed each on their own line.  Currently what gets passed in

%doc file1 file2 file3

which throws:
	error: More than one file on a line: file1
	error: More than one file on a line: file2
	error: More than one file on a line: file3

Expectation is to break the files up into separate lines:


which then works as expected with multiple files.

Should this be closed? It looks like the PR is only changing a file in distutils, and according to distutils is deprecated and only release blocking issues will be considered.

  Copy from PEP-632: In Python 3.10 and 3.11, distutils will be formally marked as deprecated. All known issues will be closed at this time.
  I close this bpo. If there have some block issues to discuss, we can reopen it again:)
