Would that result in displaying both author and maintainer info on the PyPI page?  For what cases is it useful?

Questions about author/maintainer come up from time to time.  The way I understand it, the goal of these fields is to give contact information to the users; if only author is specified, distutils sends that info to PyPI, but if maintainer is given, distutils uses that and ignores author.  That way, credit can be preserved with the author field, and the current contact is given by maintainer.  If this thinking is correct (PEPs aren’t explicit about that), then only one of maintaine and author should be sent.

What do you think?
