Issue with the portgroup python using the python.version variable

I'm developing a port file for a python package that I have here (, but I cannot read the variable
python.version as mentioned in the documentation (

When I try to read this variable I get the following message:

Failed to parse file science/py-bob.blitz/Portfile: can't read
"python.version": no such variable

I have checked a couple of python ports such as  py-docutils (
or py-scikit-image (
and I'm doing basically the same thing that they do and I can't figure out
what is wrong.

The portfile is attached

Thank you very much in advance
