See the distutils-sig at python.org instead.

Um, a macosx egg built on Linux?  :)

Really, if you need to upload a file manually like this, I would suggest 
using the PyPI web interface and just uploading it by hand.  You can go to 
your file management URL from the package, and from there you can delete 
the file and then re-upload it, perhaps inserting a more appropriate 
comment about the build platform.  :)
