What is an .EGG-INFO file?
The egg-info file extension is mainly related to so called Python Eggs. A "Python egg" is a logical structure embodying the release of a specific version of a Python project, comprising its code, resources, and metadata.
The egg-info file or directory is placed *adjacent* to the project's code and resources, that directly contains the project's metadata.
