+== Version Policy ==
+Ports should attempt to support the latest stable version of Python, and should generally avoid using Python versions that are no longer receiving upstream updates (a.k.a. "end-of-life"), unless it is impossible to use a newer version for some reason. As always, no port should be removed without first ensuring it has no remaining dependents (remember that this applies recursively), and the permission of relevant maintainers should be obtained. Port maintainers may extend support for older Python versions at their discretion.
+End-of-life Python versions should include the deprecated portgroup so that users know they are EOL and can make an informed decision whether to continue using them.
+The setuptools, pip and virtualenv modules should continue to be provided even for EOL Python versions, so that users who need them can still install modules.
