I just tried doing the upload via the web interface, and got the same error. It appears that PyPI doesn't support uploading eggs, which is surprising because I could've sworn that the sprinters at PyCon said they were putting eggs on the list of allowed filetypes. But I just found the appropriate PyPI source code, and '.egg' isn't on the list of allowed file extensions, so I'll go ahead and file an RFE for this.

I can't seem to convince the "upload" command to send egg distributions to PyPI. I'm using the CVS head version of "upload", and modified bdist_egg to add the necessary information to distribution.dist_files, but attempting to upload gives this response (using --show-response):
