 Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development. It offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools, comes with extensive standard libraries, and can be learned in a few days. Many Python programmers report substantial productivity gains and feel the language encourages the development of higher quality, more maintainable code.
 == Python in MacPorts ==
 MacPorts allows the installation of several different versions of python.[[BR]]
-Versions 2.6 and later, however, are the primary focus of work.
+Versions 3.5 and later, however, are the primary focus of work. New ports should support Python 3.7, with support for older versions added only if there is a good reason.
 == Frameworks ==
-Python is installed as [http://developer.apple.com/documentation/MacOSX/Conceptual/BPFrameworks/Frameworks.html Framework].[[BR]]
-To maintain compatibility, however, python24 and python25 install as a hybrid Framework/Library installation (see #16334).
+Python is installed as a [https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/MacOSX/Conceptual/BPFrameworks/Frameworks.html Framework].[[BR]]
 == Avoiding Conflicts ==
 Since MacPorts supports several different version of Python, conventions are adopted to ensure that there are no conflicts.[[BR]]
-Ports which use the python PortGroups
-([browser:trunk/dports/_resources/port1.0/group/python24-1.0.tcl python24],
-[browser:trunk/dports/_resources/port1.0/group/python25-1.0.tcl python25],
-[browser:trunk/dports/_resources/port1.0/group/python26-1.0.tcl python26],
-[browser:trunk/dports/_resources/port1.0/group/python27-1.0.tcl python27],
-[browser:trunk/dports/_resources/port1.0/group/python31-1.0.tcl python31]
-[browser:trunk/dports/_resources/port1.0/group/python32-1.0.tcl python32])
+Ports of python modules which use the [https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/blob/master/_resources/port1.0/group/python-1.0.tcl python PortGroup]
 are automatically installed so as to avoid conflicts.[[BR]]
 Other python packages must self-enforce conventions to avoid conflicts.
