Do you mean a documentation bug report? I do agree with you that a
non-ambiguous definition of "member" should be given in the language
reference. At the present it seems that metaclass methods are not
considered "members" of the instance class: if this is the case,
it should be documented. On the other hand, if this is not the case,
then inspect.getmember is buggy.
