The distutils "build" and "build_ext" commands provide a "--debug" option to enable building with debug information. But this option doesn't have any affect because the default CFLAGS contain "-g" (python3-config --cflags) so debug information is always included and "-g0" isn't passed if debug is False.

Is this intentional?

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
