Right; it's a stub port, whose only job is to install the default python version of the port, for users who didn't know they should specify a python version, or for users upgrading from a pre-unified version of the python 2.4 version of the port.

All ports must install at least one file, so stub ports generally install a meaningless README containing a copy of the port's description, or a message saying the port is a stub port.
