The pybuild clean target is what removes the descartes.egg-info (during
dh_auto_clean), and that gets run before by gbp before it applies the

pybuild doesn't adhere to the conventional debhelper -X option to
exclude items. Overriding the dh_auto_clean target and defining a custom
clean command and/or not using dh_auto_clean may work, but this is all a
bit too much effort for such a minor issue.

Ideally upstream doesn't ship the egg-info, but for now we just need use
