Opinions differ. Some think it should be checked in. The use case for
this that I've heard is that the egg-info may contain stuff that's not
auto-generated from setup.py, such as locale data. But since we put all
of our package data into the packages themselves and thus our egg-info
completely generated from setup.py, I see little point in checking it in.
Fact is, it's PasteScript checking things in for us, so unless we hack
PasteScript, we'll have to live with this for now.
